This is a stamp dedicated the “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  I painted the eyes of Oculist TJ Eckelburg from the story (“…like the eyes of God.”)  This book depicts the Boomin’ ’20s in America very well and has become a part of our culture today (plus it’s fantastically written!  What’s not to love, right?)

So here’s the design for my project.  I am working on a second one for extra credit.
