fun with crittery money



Isn't this a nice squirrel? This is a Belarus half-ruble note. (Thanks, WikiCommons. If you want to see the rest of the Belarus notes as well as some spiffy Nepalese ones, go here.)

I wish I knew why the US doesn't want to put any beautiful animals on our hard-earned cash. If I do find out I'll be sure to post that. In the meantime, I was all set to bring you more examples of fine financial animal art, but I got totally hijacked by a photoshop contest on FreakingNews.com in which folded banknotes get merged with critters to make . . . hilarity.

The U.S. is getting more innovative, but dead presidents (and Hamilton and Franklin) are still the basis for its money. Probably too late to change... a shame.

Maybe not currency but how about stamps

Selling pet portraits is a creative and easy way to make extra money

and most of the work can be done right from the comfort of your own home. To many people, their pet is an important and beloved member of the

family and, while beautiful portraits of other family members adorn the walls, most people rarely have a portrait of their pet
