A cute little painting of a young badger kit gaining advice from a wise grub sage. This image just popped in my head, I always wanted to draw fossorial cuteness. The badger is an american badger, while the grub is a mature larva of a scarab beetle. I had a tough time trying to get the cub's face just right, he looked more like a fat ferret, but I suppose badgers and ferrets share many of the same traits.
Please enjoy this last of my pictures of 2011
Happy Holidays everyone
