Dueling Banjo Pigs

Here’s a precious piece of Americana to ward off the evil spirits of Friday the 13th.

A pair of good friends and professional illustrators, Guy Francis and Stacy Curtis, both took up the banjo in the Spring of 2010. Each had blogs to promote their art, and Guy – who had purchased his banjo after Stacy got his – posted a banjo picking pig on his site and declared “the duel is on!”

Curtis responded in kind, as did Francis, and before long the two banjo buddies created a web site to continue their drawing duel, and invited other artists to join in the fun. Dueling Banjo Pigs now features more than 500 illustrations and other form of pig pickin’ art.

Set aside a few minutes and peruse these many clever illustrations, and if you want a piece of the action, Guy and Stacy are always looking for new submissions.
