    there sould be a place on the web where you can download huge versions of cool pictures like this so you can tile print them so they are big enough to cover a wall…

    are there infact such places?

    You can try making your own using the Rasterbator. I’ve not tried it but some of the results look good. I’d guess having a simple picture to begin with helps, and as large as you can find.

    Hi Sia. I doubt that painting is for sale, if that’s what you’re asking about.
