The Elusive World of Duck Stamp Contests

December 5, 2009

These are a series of artwork pieces Monte submitted to duck stamp contests.  These pieces include submissions to both the state of Illinois and Federal government Duck Stamp Contests. Of these contests, the Federal Duck Stamp Contest is the most prestigious for an artist to win.

One interesting thing to notice is the progression of skill exhibited in these pieces.  The pieces have been posted from oldest to newest.  Also, the illustrations of the highest quality (the last four) are submissions Monte made to the Federal Duck Stamp Contest.

After some time, Monte became weary of making these submissions.  Often he would proclaim the lobbying to win one of these contests was beyond his desire.

These are all originals and in the possession of his son, Eric.

  1. Witness report: I am located about 3 miles southeast of dexter missouri history,
    where dozens of people have reported to MUFON, that
    they are just three of many from Illinois and across the nation during 1897.
    Congratulations to the Montalvo family! I have lived in dexter missouri
    history for 10 years. Should it be Athletics or Academics?
