My first completed illustration of 2013. For some reason a Badger feels like the right sort of animal to begin the year with.
This illustration is loosely based on a photo my wife took years ago (back when we used to travel to adventurous destinations) of a small boy in a remote impoverished Ecuadorian village in the Andes called Zumbahua. The boy was happily flying his plastic bag on a string, up and down the street. Probably didn't know kites existed and wouldn't have cared anyway. One of those images that stays with you.
