The Gatsby Era


WIP, ink, 2010


Here's one of my current artsies! It's a work in progress and I'm going to leave it alone for now until I decide what I want to do with the background. Someone suggested that I put a dead person in the background, which sounds morbid, but I could see that working, haha. The drawing was most definately inspired my Halloween costume from last year which I put together after our class had to read the Great Gatsby.. one of my favorite books ever! I love everything that is anything from the 1920s. The clothing styles, the hair, the daring need to break away from society..
