The many faces of Eustace Tilley

This assignment is based on a cover 'The New Yorker' runs each year. Eustace Tilley is a dandy who gets re-imagined by new artist every year.
Examples and info can be found here.
This is my interpretation. By my guess he's the oldest dandy on the block at this stage.
Again it's on my list of pieces that I have to re-do the lettering on illustrator. So hard to get hand lettering visible when you make the file digital.
In case you can't make it out, it reads -

E. Tilley: I say sir, any dosh so I can get TOTALLY ossified?
Be a good fellow!
Police: TILLY! Get off the streets ya crazy old dandy!
