The Currency Drawings were inspired by imagery on the front and back of the United States Dollar. The artist combined his own symbolism and hidden imagery with that of the dollar bill’s masonic symbolism. They are numbered in the order that they were drawn with an olive green, celadon green, french grey, cool grey, black and white colored pencils. The values we teach children surrounding the issue of money were the primary motivations for this series. Proverbs and common cliches such as “Money doesn’t grow on trees”, “Time is Money” and “Climbing the Ladder of Success” also served as inspiration.
