Perhaps it was a bad photo day, but Abe Lincoln and Natsume Soseki look so depressed on their respective currencies that it's saddening; lucky for them, Hasegawa Yosuke created these featured origami designs to give them a much-needed makeover.

Hasegawa Yosuke has injected life into the presidents and queens on money notes through origami. By folding the bills into hats, he's given each political figure an interesting makeover. While the authorities on our money may still look unamused and uninterested, it's still a step up from their original photos. Stats for Currency Origami Art Trending: Older & Warm
