This stuff is gorgeous and legal. It is only illegal to deface or destroy money if you do it with the intent to defraud.

I had a friend who was a manager at a grocery store in a smallish town. Once someone sliced up 1s and 20s to get Washington's picture with $20 symbols to either side. They told the cashier their kids had been playing with the scissors and she accepted the bills. They then turned their original 20s into a bank with the same sob story and got new bills to replace them. That would have been way illegal.

Is that George Washington making a T-rex hedge clipping or is it a scene out of the game Bioshock: Infinite where he battles the T-rex? Oops, sorry! Spoilers!

Wow, I never knew that, and came here to compare the artist to Snowden. Nice to hear at least one entity still understands fair use.

No. Then it wouldn't be so Georgeous.

I came to say the same thing, and tell a similar story. Nothing questionable about it. It's legal.
