West Monroe, La. - The Robertson's from A&E hit series, Duck Dynasty have made millions from the sale of duck calls. Now, they are hoping to conquer the art world with their first ever lithograph.
The first family of ducks cried fowl when they learned that many times the artwork that graces Louisiana's famous duck stamp and poster, is created by out of state artists. "It's 100% Louisiana, no Yankees or Yuppies Involved", said Si Robertson in a video promoting the print.
Famous poster artist, Michael Hunt has the honor of being Duck Commander's first official artist with a beautiful painting of two wood ducks. The poster is limited to only 1500 copies, each numbered and individually signed by Phil, Si, Willie and Jase Robertson.
"We chose Michael on the basis of his last name being Hunt", said Willie Robertson. "He has painted the Pope and U.S. Presidents, we were a natural addition to spice up his art", said Jase Robertson referring to the fact that the artist's work is included in the prestigious collections of the Vatican and the White House.
With the collaboration of Michael Hunt and the Robertsons, The Official Duck Commander Lithograph was created in appreciation of the true spirit of the sport of duck hunting. In this 1st Edition; Michael's rendition of two wood ducks, nestled in their natural habitat on a hazy winter morning, captures the peaceful beauty of this water fowl and the soulful spirit of the sport.
With more than 6 million people tuning into Duck Dynasty's Christmas special, the 1500 prints should sell out in record time becoming one of the year's most unique and sought after gifts. The prints are available by visiting DuckCommander.com or by calling the artist's studio at 1-800-426-1379.
