Impressive: Video Of An Artist Turning A $5 Abraham Lincoln Portrait Into Bill Murray

October 26, 2016


This is a time-lapse video of artist Matt Anderson (aka Ginozko) using black and white charcoal pencils to turn the portrait of Abraham Lincoln on the front of a $5 bill into Bill Murray, making it a real five dollar Bill. The final result is most impressive, and I'd be willing to pay upwards of $4 for it so even if art prices plummet I can still turn a profit. Still, no word if drawing a celebrity comedian's face on a bill is enough to have them elected our next president, but in this case I think we can all hope.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to ELindon, who agrees a Bill Murray fiver should be worth at least $10.

    OK then, it's settled. I'm calling $5 bills Five Dollar Abraham Lincoln Portraits from this day forward.

  • Using a white pencil is cheating.

    is it just me, or does that intermediate gw chose look oddly effeminate? like a younger bearded lady

    It does. Btw, useing the 'eraser' (white overlay) is totally unfair. It's like using the 'name game' to rhyme.

  • digidude

    Agreed. While the artist has impressive talent, it's really more like drawing over Lincoln than transforming him.

    Honestly, shouldn't Bill Murray just be on our money anyway?
