The Robertson's from the 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 percent Louisiana, no Yankees or Yuppies Involved,” Si Robertson said 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 1,500 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,” Willie Robertson said.
“He has painted the Pope and U.S. Presidents, we were a natural addition to spice up his art,” Jase Robertson said, referring to the fact that Hunt’s work is included in the prestigious collections of the Vatican and the White House.
With the collaboration of 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 first Edition, Hunt’s rendition of two wood ducks nestled in their natural habitat on a hazy winter morning captures the peaceful beauty of this waterfowl and the soulful spirit of the sport.
With more than 6 million people tuning into Duck Dynasty's Christmas special, the 1,500 prints should sell out in record time, becoming one of the year's most unique and sought gifts.
As Phil says, it will make anyone who receives it “Happy, happy, happy.”
The prints are available by visiting DuckCommander.com or by calling the artist's studio at 1-800-426-1379.
