Taken this week from my sketchbook. Studying Pugs.
This drawing is all about an old fun park where I grew up called Idora Park. Idora Park was in Youngstown, Ohio which came on hard times many years ago. It was one of many steel towns that busted in the 80s. Idora Park was set in Mill Creek Park, which is still a beautiful park that is worth a drive. This park had an amazing carousel. The carousel was built in 1922 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company. The horses and carousel have been beautifully restored and are now Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn New York.
