Next up in the PTQ series are stamps from the U.S. The illustrations featured in this set are inspired by the work of LA based artist @nathanbell. Both a designer and artist, Nathan is best known for his loose hand-drawn style that Hypebeast has described as displaying a sort of stream of consciousness flow.

The U.S will be back on football's biggest stage in Qatar after missing out on Russia 2018. In a reasonably tough group with games against England, Wales and Iran, the USMNT will be hoping they can replicate their run in 2014 when they narrowly missed out on a quarter final place. Their first group game comes against Wales on the 21st November. They'll then play England on Black Friday and end the group with a potentially politically contentious game against Iran.
