It's A Wonderful Life

I love this film, I'm a huge fan of James Stewart. If you haven't seen it, watch it.
I drew this from pausing the film on TV, using a ink pen and watercolour.  I debated whether I should colour and decided leaving it in greys.  Maybe I will do it again in colour and imagine what Mary Bailey would have painted it.

Illustration Friday: Moustache

I visited The British Museum recently and found these items that made me think of this weeks theme. 
They are cast bronze masks representing moustachioed male faces buried around 50-20 BC and found in a rich cremation burial at Welwyn Hertfordshire.  They're tiny, probably 5cm maybe 1.5inches tall.

These are some quick sketches I did after a recent visit to the Owl and Monkey Haven, Isle of Wight.
