Inside his home studio in New Orleans, artist Michael Deas can spend months working on a single oil painting. But collectors need only spend a few cents to own a print of his most popular works. His portraits sell for pennies. Deas has created 25 stamps for the U.S. Postal Service.

“I have a friend who likes to call me the most famous artist you’ve never heard of,” he said.

He’s not allowed to sign the paintings used on stamps, which means he may not be a household name. But his subjects are certainly well-known – he’s responsible for an impressive gallery of American icons.
