It looks like he found this illustrator, either from working with him before or by looking for one, and either commissioned the image or asked if he could use it legally for Twitter. Says right on there 'copyright' and dont tell me after all this time that you think George would just grab an image from the internet without asking permission with HIS legal history

Now the question is, did he commission the image or ask permission?

I thinks its a bit interesting that the front pig has goggles on, SURE, you could say its because they're aviator pigs, but what if it WAS commissioned and George said "and throw some sunglasses or goggles on one of them, but dont be too obvious about it "

its possible.... think about it...

and to all the haters, I am passing time, I'm having trouble containing my brain in my skull right now and this wild speculation is helping!!!
well...

So, being the nerd I am I emailed Mr. Prichett about his pigs fly image. He had this to say: "The image is my property. No one commissioned me to create this work. I have not granted the use of this image to anyone recently."

so George DID swipe it!!!!

gotta be honest this is even funnier than if he had commissioned it, oh George, won't you ever learn?

Well, he could have just found it one day, and either decided to post it for lulz, or IT'S A SIGN!

I don't think posting an image on Twitter is illegal. :P

Re: Images analyzed
so to close up the 'pigs fly' image situation here's a rundown

1) found out that if you type "the day pigs fly" into Google Image search the image appears on the second page.

2) the image links to this blog: http://www.ircccanblog2.blogspot.com/
this has NO relevance to anything, just giving the link.

3) I actually emailed and got a response from the illustrator who created the image, he swiftly emailed me back saying, "no, I didn't get commissioned to make the image and no one has asked my permission lately"

Which leads to my own speculation, if you'd like to hear it:

George typed "The day pigs fly" into Google image search (since typing "pigs fly" or any other variation does not bring up the image) looked around a bit, and found the image we've all seen thinking that it served the purpose he wanted it to, and posted it to his Twitter account.

SO, knowing this George went to Google, looking for something, something along the lines of "the day pigs fly" and found the image, he posted it knowing something, this is not some "oooo here's something cool I want to show everyone" post.

Now to counter my excitement I'll also offer a negative solution to this:

George is laughing at the forum and all of us because we get so bent out of shape over every little thing, so he decided to have some fun and found the image and posted it, knowing we would freak out like this.

Remember, 3D Realms doesn't have a PR dept. So they aren't very good at speaking to the press, and us.

I hope this offers enough of both sides of the issue, a solution for the DukeTards and one for the NayTards

Probably he knew about the site. Also it's possible that he chose that one because of the pig on the left, who has glasses.

very possible, but if you look around Google and think the way he was thinking, there aren't many other images that fit the bill

Also, the image he used seems to be the low-res version the author put as a demo on his website. That's why GB didn't ask for his permission. Could there be a higher-res pic if you ask the author?
GB probably just grabbed the pic and posted it without thinking about it too much, like we do haha.
