badger peek...



Two posts in one day... phew! It's a little bit bunny time again, and this months creature is the humble old badger. I was sorely tempted to do my interpretation of the old curmudgeon from Wind In The Willows to go alongside my Toad in his motor car illustration (previously on ALBB). Maybe I'll try that out now I've worked out some badger designs I like as a starting point. To my way of thinking I kept seeing glimpses of polar bear in a badgers anatomy...?! I had to reign myself in from heading down a 'polar bear Dick Turpin' route... Well here's my sketch work and a peek of the final piece which is over on ALBB.

Love these! Especially the badgers in the second image and the last. The last image reminds me of this past Saturday night, when a very confused armadillo wandered into the road in front of me. Luckily I was going slow enough that I was able to stop, and he wandered around in front of me for a few moments before heading for the woods on the other side of the street. I need to find some reference images and do some armadillo sketches I think :)
