I found a large and colorful stamp honouring the author, F. Scott Fitzgerald. He had many setbacks in his life, most self-inflicted, and he died at age 42, a tortured genius. I imagined him receiving rejection notices from publishing houses so my collage took its theme from there.
The stamp was Googled. The body (coloured and altered a little, including decapitation) is a Flickr-free-to-use image. Ephemera is from Christina Renee and Trish Jones and the postmarks are by Katie Pertiet at Designer Digitals.
