Baby Monkey Riding on a Pig


The video “Baby Monkey (Going Backwards On A Pig)” by Parry Gripp was an early viral sensation, racking up 9 million views in 2011. Now, 13 years later, it has nearly 30 million views, and is somehow still stuck in my head. I took it quite literally, painting my kid’s baby monkey on a package of bacon.

I love to practice painting fast and loose by doing these memes, because they are likely to be replaced by the next new thing before I’m done.


Baby Monkey Riding on a Pig, 6X8, oil on archival canvasboard, framed in simple pewter. Shipping is included within the continental United States. For Alaska, Hawaii and international shipping, contact me for an estimate of the surcharge.


If a painting disappoints, I will of course refund your money, on return of the painting back in my Rockport studio. Returned art must be properly packaged, with corner protectors as required and insured to its full value.

All refunds will be processed back to your original method of payment.
