How It All Started

It started out with a duel between friends, illustrators Guy Francis and Stacy Curtis.

On May 24, 2010, Guy bought a banjo because he had seen Stacy had a banjo and he wanted to 'duel,' so he posted a pig playing a banjo on his blog and announced to Stacy, "the duel is on!"

This is the very first banjo pig of the duel, by Guy Francis.

They continued back and forth posting banjo-playing pigs on their individual blogs until they decided to post them all in one place online and invite other artists to join in on their duel.

The rest is history.
A history of over 550 banjo pigs, that is!
