Art Project Tails You Lose Transforms Queen Elizabeth Into X-Men, Leela and Other Pop Culture Icons



Of course it’s not just Queen Elizabeth, it’s also pretty much anything or anyone who graces the face of a coin in Europe, from Italy to the Netherlands, and from Turkey to Spain; from X-Men to Futurama, from Hammer Horror to Miyazaki. We’ve featured a few of them here, but be sure to check out the rest of Andre Levy’s work on Tumblr or Facebook.

    My mom used to act like the government would come and get me if they caught me doing this to coins. And I could have been internet famous!

    Isn’t it technically a crime, defacing currency? Or is that an urban myth?

    Yes I did a bit of googling and though it used to be technically illegal to deface images of the queen the relevant act was repealed in 1936 and wasn’t actually enforced for quite a long time before that. Well, that sets my heart at rest :)
