Today I went with my Dad to the Great Northern Museum today (formerly The Hancock Museum) for some inspiration.
Elephant skin and my Dad (this is actually a drawing from a photo I found when I got home that night from about 24 years ago. He's a baldy one now.)
Common Tern (Stema Hirundo)
Greylag Goose (Anser anser)
Oh I also saw 2 dead people today...a real-life (but dead) Mummy and The Lindow Man, a man who was discovered in a bog. His body was in a glass case. There was still hair on his head and his head was caved in a bit. It was really gross. I did not draw this.
