The Art Gallery- 2015 Island Dreams Prohibition Pretties Flapper

This month’s Art Gallery display is from j(ay), also known as 10th-letter,who is one of my favorite sketch card artists out there. He has cards in many major lines including Topps, Upper Deck, Breygent and Cult Stuff, but in the last few years has cut down to doing work mainly for Unstoppable Cards and 5finity. 

The card is from the 2015 Island Dreams Prohibition Pretties release, a set based on the 1920s with lots of gangsters and flappers. This card depicts a flapper from the era in j(ay)’s typical style. The filigree is a bit smeared in the background which I am guessing is the reason the card was cheaper than most of his sketch cards.


  1. I'm pretty sure that's Josephine Baker, a most interesting woman.

    1. Billy got here before I did, but I was going to say the same thing.

    2. That would make sense. I hadn't thought about her even though I just read something about her about 2 weeks ago.

  2. Al Stewart of "Year of the Cat" fame did a song about her.
