so I set up a fund raiser to get out a bill (like the dollar) with Nikola Tesla's face on it

the proceeds over the cost of doing this project will go toward opening a publicly accessible research facility with a machine shop and a number of other needed resources for local people who want to conduct experiments but lack some of the tools, or space, will finally be able to put their ideas to the test. I figure, this is a far better use of funds related to Tesla, as I am sure he would rather get research funded, than turn labs into sterile dead museums. :)

you can see the project here: You must be logged in to see this link. and feel free to share it around. Never know who's interest you might "spark" ;) ( anyone is free to make youtube videos too related to it, just let me know and I will add the links to the ones in the campaign's web page gallery :)

by the way, and ideas or concepts you think should be incorporated into the art work, that would help raise awareness about his work, feel free to message me, write me on the fundraiser site, or post a comment here :)

looks like things are picking up. Been thinking about what date to put on it. Current date seems the standard but what if I put something like 2050 to create a sort of goal mindset where we as FE researchers, and others who look up to Tesla all work together toward a greed free world and each of us set goals to try and achieve to reach a world free of greed? any thoughts, am I reading to much into an incredibly insignificant thing? Would you be less interested in postulating over a date on a bill (set in the future and why it is) than say looking the bill over for inspiration and ideas about Tesla like technology? or would neither of these have any effect on you even if you saw this bill hanging in a frame every day?

anyone have any of the great scientists or inventors, photos hanging on a wall anywhere to inspire you?

Let me know what you think. :)

Hi Tom.

Just some friendly criticism and not intended to dampen your spirit.

It looks like the note says 'DIE' hour with the font you have chosen and I think the letter 'P' looks very like 'D' - I miss read 'People' for 'Deodle'.
I would change the background behind Tesla's head for something else - no ideas as to what, but I think it gives the impression that he is in a padded/soundproofed room.
The rest looks great :)

criticisms considered and others asked their opinions, so far not hear anything supporting this. The thing I see is that the way the human brain works, especially with interpreting images, nothing I do is going to avoid miss interpreting it for 100% of the people. and the work invested is at an end at this point if I plan on staying on time for everyone.

a video that might give a bit more feel for how the bills look (as for the font. I may revise it to bring the bottom of the curve of the P up a bit though, I can see the failure to see the leg sticking out when looking at it from a bit of distance. closer look at it reveals it but the pics here are kinda small (mostly to keep people from trying to copy them and dealing with counterfeiting the art.)

been doing some more research, and work, like setting up a community page for people to keep up with things, on the largest community so far on the web, (also the worst it seems :( )

and here

though both are still a work in progress.

additionally I am rethinking the solar cell paint I discussed with some here like Kultus, as I might have some options in the chemistry of it, to make a self healing cell so the time limit and constant drop in productivity can be nearly eliminated. could be good news all around :)
