Big Lou

      "don't make him angry, you wouldn't like him when he's angry"

At the Sydney Supa Nova I was lucky enough to meet and get an autograph and photo with Lou Ferrigno aka The Incredible Hulk from the late 70's TV series.
From a very young age I have followed Lou's career in bodybuilding magazines to spots in television shows and feature films and I was almost overwhelmed at meeting him in person. It was a definite fulfilment of a childhood fantasy to meet the man who would crash through walls on my TV set as the Hulk when I was a kid. and what a nice guy he was, so easy going and polite and always smiling for the fans. what a great experience it was to meet Big Lou Ferrigno I am still smiling like a little kid.
so I thought I should share my happy moment with you all.

                                                   Big Lou 58 and looking great

After doing the Batman illustration I felt the need to do Robin. so here is Robin the Boy Wonder in full flight. this turned out pretty much how I had hoped and the Bat Signal was a suggestion from my very arty youngest son Talin.
