Steam Fair

The wonderful Carters Steam Fair was in Bath over the summer, with steam-powered bumper cars, dodgems, dive bombers, chair-o-planes, giant octopus and much more. I sketched some of the logos on the vintage slot machines in the penny arcade (just doing the lines on location), and then tried to draw one of their many Scammel lorries (the angle was a bit dull and I managed to go off the page…). Next time they’re in town I’ll sketch the huge and magnificent 1921 Excelsior Steam Yachts in action, steam puffing, boats swinging, punters screaming!
