Badgers in the sketchbook

May 27, 2013

Here’s a pair of pencil drawings I did in my sketchbook of badgers in April. Here’s the first one.

Here’s another. What a lovely pair of badgers.

These little sketchbook drawings were inspired by a petition I signed against the proposed badger cull in the UK, seeing photos of badgers reminded me of how cute they can be, especially when rendered in pencil on paper. I’m particularly fond of the second drawing, what a handsome badger! (Both are drawn from photos found via Google image search, as I don’t see many badgers in the wild near me.) Regardless of opinions on the cull, I think everyone can admit that badgers make great subjects for drawings. Lots of black and white for contrast and big fluffy fur texture!

If you want to show your interest in the cause, there are petitions on 38 Degrees and the official e-petitions gov site.
