Canadian Pacific Railway - Art Deco 1933 Advertisement

Well. I was wanting to learn the basics of Illustrator, and this seemed like a great class to start. Hoping it goes well...

All right. This may have not been the best choice for a newbie, but I'm going with it! I love the style of this advertisement and am hoping to recreate it to the best of my ability. 

I'm finding that the pen tool is coming in handy with all the curves I need to do, so that's what I've been using. I will probably use the shapes technique farther on in the project.

Basic colors and shapes. The ad itself looks aged and I'm thinking a bunch of grading will need to be done to obtain the right colors and the right amount of grain. Eesh.
