Portraits Made From Strips of Shredded Money

I think we all know the perfect song for these photos, but I have got to say, who can afford to shred cash? There must be a great story behind this!

Artist Evan Wondolowski uses thousands of paper strips from shredded U.S. Federal Reserve Notes to create these amazingly detailed portraits of celebrities and politicians. Evan says that he starts with an underdrawing of the portrait on newsprint and then glues each shred of currency piece by piece before finishing up with a little vine charcoal to increase contrast. Each portrait can take up to a month or more. Keep an eye on his website for new works in the future
