Final sketch for Badger Boy

Portrait of Troy Nickle as Badger Boy.

While attending a recent Dr. Sketchy's event, Troy Nickle showed me a photograph he had taken of himself in his skivvies. While I instantly remarked that I thought he looked like Bobby Hill, my next thought was that I desperately wanted to transform the image into Badger Boy. It seems to be a logical progression from the idealised masculinity in the Buckheads to portray the flawed and vulnerable body given character by the addition of an animal head chosen to convey the specifics of the individual portrayed.
