Hobo’s aren’t really famous for much, but apparently they can carve the shit out of a nickel.
Artist, Paolo Curcio (aka MrThe) isn’t a hobo, but he has taken this artform to a whole new level. His technique of etching into standard clad coins completely transforms them from nearly useless currency into multilayered portraits of skulls, horror icons, and more. Here’s a small sample of his incredible work below.
Ash / Evil Dead
Creature from the Black Lagoon
Chucky / Child’s Play
Dracula / Bela Lugosi
Misfits, Die Die My Darling
Pennywise / IT
Mt. Rushmore Monsters
