Duane B. "Dick" Bryers (July 2, 1911 – May 30, 2012, Tucson, AZ) was an American painter, illustrator, and sculptor.[1][2]

In the 21st century, Bryers was rediscovered as creator of an unconventional plump-bodied pinup girl, Hilda, who appeared in calendars from the mid-1950s to 1980s.[3][4]

A collection of Bryers' illustrations may be found in the book The Bunkhouse Boys from the Lazy Daisy Ranch.
