Michelle Dickens- Favorite Love Story

Among my favorite love stories is F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby." Although the romantic aspect of the novel is a small component within a larger context of decadence and corruption in the roaring twenties, I find Gatsby's unwavering devotion to Daisy very touching. In keeping with the symbolism in the novel, I utilized a color palette of green and golds to illustrate the characters' affluence. It was also fun to experiment with an art deco approach to recreate the look of the period.
