Susquehanna Blue Smoke

The barbecue battle, the boxing match, and other examples of ritualized warfare are here made literal.

This is actual combat, with uniforms and weapons and everything. The animals, naturally, reenact the Civil War and recast it in terms of combatants fighting for their chance to be eaten.

These aren't hobbyists playacting. This is that most terrible of all institutions: the art of war. And the stakes couldn't be higher.

Who can claim the title of conqueror? Whose banner will be hoisted on the rubble of victory? Who is the finest food?

That is some most excellent artwork. And superb taste in food choices as well.

Before you ask, no, I don't know where you can purchase samples of this artist's work.

That is an excellent logo. Does anyone know who did it?

Ben said...

Surely the poster at the barbecue forum mentioned his name, right?

Oh come on Ben this has to be the most traffic you have received on one of your posts.

Ben said...

Actually, this post is small potatoes. We got lots and lots of traffic from the Daily Blessings post. And the Danny's Bar-B-Que post. And then there was the Sausages from Auvergne post.

This one has just been people from one barbecue site.

I stand corrected!

You should seriously contact the artist to see if he can help you out with that banner of yours. Improving that might help get you more traffic too.
