Designer and illustrator Tobias Knipf, from German design studio Musclebeaver, artistically gives us a glimpse of what happens to the money we spend and invest. Behind this very creative animation is a positive message for all potential investors.

See more stills of the project at Tobias’ Flickr photostream, or visit his homepage, Musclebeaver, for many more works by this artist.
