Badgers in top hats....

Doodled up some little circle designs this morning, trying out some new pencil and paint techniques. Watercolor is a tricky thing and I just wanted to experiment with some things.

And I've been working on a story that has badgers in it... badgers wearing top hats. They are really fun to draw. The stripes on their faces make them look rakish, in my opinion.

Here's a quick sketch.

What's on your desk?



  1. They do look a bit rakish, and friendly, even though they have some sharp claws. I wonder who the flower is for?

  2. How clever and cute! I so enjoy your style!
    Thank you for your inspiration! My grandson and I have made several of the toys.

  3. Great drawing! I used it to illustrate a short story I wrote here ( and credited you. If you want me to take it down I will certainly do so. Thanks so much for sharing your talent!

    1. Dear Jeremy, Your stories are delightful. Write on, Marilyn
