Living like Gatsby

With the new Great Gatsby flick out, noted internet researcher and artist, Nickolay Lamm, came up with this pretty cool graphic illustrating how much money Gatsby would need to live in the modern day, and what kind things he’s spending the big bucks on (spoiler alert: parties).

Doesn’t seem completely right that Gatsby’s only spending $34 million, but maybe Lamm’s right. Either way, the illustrations are pretty cool, and the concept is awesome. I was thinking it was a little long at first, or maybe even a little text heavy, but it’s grown on me, and I’m a big fan of this particular graphic.
