Artist Jeff McMillan’s work centers around the Prigus Sport League, a game that involves paddles, and wild dogs, and was invented by farmers in a town called Rabun Gap. If you’ve never heard of it before it’s because it doesn’t exist, but that doesn’t stop Jeff from touring around opening expansion teams in various cities. Have a look at some more of his work below.
Here’s an entertaining series of drawings and paintings by artist Jeff McMillan in honour of the first professional Prigus Sport League. The works depict the origins of the Prigus game, as well as the players, equipment, and memorabilia. The little twist is that the sport doesn’t actually exist. More images below.
