Born on a small farm in Wyoming, Gatsby ate more than his share of cans and trash before realizing he wanted something more from life. Winning a Fulbright Scholarship to Cambridge Business School, Gatsby grew his horns, studied and earned his degree in Business Administration. He became a star rugby athlete known for his kicking and head-butting on and off the field. Returning to the states, Gatsby successfully started a number of business ventures, which enabled him to partially retire by age 29 (in goat years he was 5).
Today, Goatman Gatsby lives on his Connecticut estate where he tends his apple orchard, chickens, and horses. He enjoys model trains and is currently writing a novel about werewolves (he’s fascinated by anthropomorphism). Though a world traveler, Goatman Gatsby favors his trips back to the family farm in Wyoming where he spends time with his nephews and nieces, whom he calls ‘The Kids’.
Yes, I like goats. My friends know this. They’ve probably been called ‘goat’ by me and hopefully they see it as the sign of affection it is. Since goats are commonly domesticated farm animals (and are awesome), it seemed appropriate to equate a Domesticated Bachelor with a domesticated goat in a suit. So there you go. This is what my basic art editing has yielded. Please welcome Goatman Gatsby!
