The Teddy-Shaped Hole
So it turns out that the connection between President William Taft and a badger is none other than Theodore Roosevelt. Taft, of course, was TR's hand-picked successor. And Roosevelt being Roosevelt, he went out one day into the forest and tamed a wild badger. Josiah the Badger was a pet at the white house.
For this series, I expanded on some of previous work - Taft/Badger and Temp Art - to develop a growing narrative of an epic clash between two cultures - a ruling class of Taft clones and a diverse badger-themed underclass. I don't really know where its going, but I'm enjoying watching it unfold.
