We've seen Grey Hulk, Savage Hulk, and Merged Hulk duke it out for control over Bruce Banner's sanity, but now a new challenger has emerged from the mind of artist David Nakayama: Cow Hulk. Cow Hulk is a fully-painted, fiberglass reimagining of the Incredible Hulk himself… if he were a cow.
That's no small feat. The statue is roughly the size of a real cow and took somewhere between ten and twelve weekend sessions for Nakayama to fully paint. Nakayama is known for his work as an artist on comic book series like "Deadpool and the Mercs for Money," "Scarlet Spiders" and "Longshot Saves the Marvel Universe." According to a Facebook post by Nakayama, this was the first time since art school he has worked with physical paints, which was a "good (but humbling) experience."
The Hulk Cow was commissioned for the San Luis Obispo County Cow Parade in California. The parade itself is an international art exhibit that has made its way to cities like Paris, Athens and Rome. The San Luis County event will feature 101 painted cows on display between September, 2016 and May, 2017 to celebrate the county's agricultural history and growing arts scene.
The cows will be auctioned off for charity at the close of the event. The proceeds will benefit local San Luis County nonprofits.
