Counterfeit

So I updated my Artmoney account with 15 pieces today. They are little exploratory pieces that I do at the kitchen table when I have an hour or two, or if I’m just stuck on a piece for that book I’d intended to be done with last summer.

Artmoney is a project that I heard about years ago, but never got around to signing up for until recently. It allows artists to produce their own money, all to a set format and value, which are accepted as currency in a few select shops worldwide, as well as sold on the artmoney website. Since my no-silos policy prevent me from using funding sites like Kickstarter, this humble, offbeat initiative is a tolerable compromise between making a bit of money and signing up for an external service.

Do check out all the artmoney – I mean mine, of course, “all my artmonies”! – and support the arts, one homemade note at at time!
