Strongmen on Twitter Background


UPDATE (7 APR 2014) :

I'm currently doing a lot of design work for this site with another illustrator - and one I highly recommend, just take a look at his portfolio - my brother Glenn Bird. You'll find him over at glennbirdart.com.

I'm constantly surrounded by strength-training memorabilia (particularly that of old-time Strongmen/Strongwomen from 1870 - present), so when Rory Hickman offered to design a twitter background (which you can see here), it was logical to display several of them on there.
Here are just a few of the many athletes and strength feats depicted :

Incidentally, if you're looking to have an image created for your own twitter profile page, drop either Rory or Glenn a note. Superb work.
