Maury McCoy is a freelance graphic designer living in Austin, TX. His background is diverse including working as a 3D animator and video game producer. The inspiration for this product came from having a jar of pennies, a fondness for our 16th president and too much free time! Numerous attempts were made to create an image that is both easy to assemble and a convincing optical illusion. What started out as a simple proof of concept on the computer turned into something he was finally content with 38 versions later.
Put those pennies to good use! This poster set lets kids use the change they've collected over the years to create a copper-hued portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Instructions explain which penny patina variations go where and an educational booklet features facts about the 16th president and the history of the penny, along with scientific information like simple chemistry experiments using pennies and household materials. This kit is perfect for little history buffs, budding scientists, and coin collectors alike! Printed in Austin, Texas.
