Maverick Arts Publishing has created a new calendar depicting guinea pigs going for gold at a huge sporting event like the Olympics. The Guinea Pig Games 2013 calendar features the furry creatures competing in events such as hurdles, swimming, show jumping and cycling.
Guinea Pig Games
As you may have already guessed, the guinea pigs weren’t taking part in any of the events. It’s all digital manipulation. The animals were photographed in a comfortable studio for no more than five minutes at a time and with plenty of treats.
Steve Bicknell, owner of publishers Maverick Arts, says: "Guinea Pig Games is one of our most successful calendars. We hired the guinea pigs from Palace Piggie Rescue in Crawley in exchange for a donation. The owner of the rescue site handled the guinea pigs."
