Dublin Postcard

Just very rough sketches so far! I decided to do what a few others have done and make a city postcard.

My usual taste is for very decorative script lettering, but for whatever reason that just wasn't happening in my sketches today. I do like the 1930s-ish lettering in the lower right, so I think my next step will be to work that up into a bigger sketch. I like the unexpected twist of using a style reminiscent of jazz and the fun aspects of the twenties and thirties -- since not a lot of that fun was actually going on in Dublin at the time!

Here is the text digitized, and a first rough try at colouring:

Still lots to do on this, but it's taking shape.
