Hi!
I'm a student in college and I'm trying to figure what kinds of fonts I could use with this image.
I want to use three or two fonts that compliment this image. Im going for a 1950 look.
Thank you
any advice would be greatly appreciated!

The combination of this art with Oo-Boodlio-Doo would have a definite Ben Shahn vibe. Oo-Boodlio-Doo is inspired by Ad Lib, designed by Freeman Craw in 1961, and it's hard to imagine Craw wasn't influenced by Ben Shahn's distinctive handlettering.
