Capel Street area

A lot of themes in this sketch of mine: food, nationalism, horse racing, advertising, and most of all, what would Bloom notice if he was wandering the streets of Dublin today?

And another style - Using a red watercolour pencil for light outline and shadows to define edges. And a lot more writing.

"—Ascot. Gold cup. Wait, Bantam Lyons muttered. Half a mo. Maximum the second.
—I was just going to throw it away, Mr Bloom said.
Bantam Lyons raised his eyes suddenly and leered weakly.
—What's that? his sharp voice said.
—I say you can keep it, Mr Bloom answered. I was going to throw it away that moment."
