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.
