Famous Amigo Owner - Hal Foster

Hal Foster (August 18, 1892 – July 25, 1982) was a Canadian-American illustrator and writer who is best known as creator of the Prince Valiant comic strip.

Prince Valiant was first published in 1937 and continued for decades. The comic strip has remained popular, and Foster was inducted into the Joe Shuster Canadian Comic Book Creators Hall of Fame in 2005.

Foster used an Amigo scooter in the latter years of his life as his health began to deteriorate due to arthritis and Alzheimer's disease. 

Foster had a significant impact on comic art, with many of his techniques and compositions continuing to influence artists today.
