with a little Tampa themed postcard action.
Everyone that knows me knows that I have hometown pride. So, helping out with creating a Tampa themed postcard was pretty cool.
I handled the drawings, while the color and text were added later. As a Tampa native, it was somewhat difficult to choose a handful of landmarks that represent the city. Since I’m from here, there are places that “are Tampa” to me, but some people might not recognize them. I had to try to encompass as much of Tampa as possible in only a few images. Using images of the Jose Gaspar ship, a TECO trolley car, City Hall, the Sulphur Springs Tower and UT minarets, I was able to capture a large area of the city from Downtown to Bayshore to Sulphur Spring/Seminole Heights, and Ybor.
