'The Sett' is part of the 'Home' series. I created this series to capture the feeling of comfort and safety you experience when you’re in your home. I imagined the animals experiencing the same feeling when they get back into their dens, warrens or nests.
On my research, for this illustration, I loved the way the badgers would get as close as they could to each other to sleep. Badgers are very fussy over the cleanliness of their burrow, carrying in fresh bedding every day.
