OPEN SWIM: CLAW Draws Hobo Dollars!

February 5th, 2015 by RR Anderson

CLAW TEAM ASSEMBLE! Hark! You too can join the elite, spongy talons of The Cartoonists League of Absurd Washingtonians as we adulterate crisp $1 bills with clever and biting imagery as demonstrated in these YOU TUBE videos. BEHOLD:


wasn’t that illuminating!?

FAQ: What is HOBO Money? A: Hobo money is a cynical art form derived from hobos traveling long stretches in box cars. For amusement hobos would scratch crude images into nickles with a pen knife or rusty nail. Such “Hobo Nickles” are highly prized by collectors and hobo aficionados. WE of the CLAW would like to revitalize this lost and dying art form…

RULES: You must bring your own dollar bill (foreign and higher denomination bills earn extra points)!  You must also bring a pen, or a black pencil and white pencil… OR however method you want to use to HACK your dollar. OPTIONAL: The CLAW would also like to keep whatever art you create to be included in an upcoming art show. YOU COULD ALREADY BE A WINNER: Participants will be asked to vote on favorite bills, there will be prizes!
