These sketchbook mixed media drawings are quite textured and gritty. They depict a rather shabbier older Dublin, full of faded grandeur and character, a Joycean Dublin.
I grew up in this older city which is now fast disappearing and being replaced with block after block of souless glass, steel and concrete monstrosities. It makes me mad and sad at the same time.

Hi James I am putting together a short film about Duke Street for a digital site. Would love to use your Burton Hotel and I would credit you. Problem is I finish tomorrow. Sadly I only spotted it today. If it’s not possible No problem Best Sé Merry Doyle email@example.com
Hi Sé Merry Doyle, work away with either of those drawings if it’s not too late, sorry I am only seeing this now. Kind regards, James Moore
