Badger, that's me!

I promised Ash I'd do some badger art as penance. Forgive me, Ash, for being such a Moleskine nag! I did lots of linework on this, in your honor :-) We badgers are pesky but cute, yes?

Actually, my hand is there because the watercolor washes made the paper buckle, so I'm trying to hold the page a little flatter while taking a photo one-handed (I don't have a scanner).

Anyone got any tips for flattening buckled paper after the fact?

Spray it VERY LIGHTLY, let it almost dry and then put paper between, close book and put weights on.

That badger is fantastic! Absolutely spot on! Well done.

Thanks, everyone! You're all so good for my art ego. Hmmm, while you're all dishing out compliments... do I look fat in these jeans? HA!

@Steve: Kudos on furry creature line drawings means a lot coming from you especially. You set a pretty high bar with those WC-bkg. mammals you did last month!
