# Biromash frenzy
Clicky for biggerer and betterer

This is eleven A4 sheets of paper- around ten feet high!

/edit/ Due to unexpected demand, I'm working on a way to be able to sell
'prints' of this in the full 10 feet x 8 inches size or half size at
5 feet x 4 inches (approx sizes). Also suggested was a series of
eleven t-shirts, each with an A4 section of the freeze on it.
If any of this interests you, or you think of another idea, just drop me a line

# Downloading software...
isn't the same as regular theft, as they haven't lost a sale over it. A lot of people who download Photoshop don't have the £600 to buy a legal version, so even if it wasn't availible online they wouldn't have bought a copy anyway.

# That's just shit.
You're passing the buck, not taking responsibility for your theft.

You're right, it's not the same as 'regular theft'. It's intelectual theft which is theft all the same. Don't tell me that nobody would be hurt if *everyone* downloaded PhotoShop.

It pisses me off to hear that excuse.

I've pirated Photoshop, but at least I take ownership of the fact that I'm stealing.

# Thanks for all your comments
I'm truly bumflappered by your generosity.

So.. what should I do with it?

The original is around 10 feet tall and 8 and a quarter inches wide.

It is made up of a total of 13 pieces. (10 complete A4 sheets and three small sections that make up the size of another A4, roughly)

For this purposes of posting on b3ta I used photoshop to stitch them together and tidy up the joins

I've already had soneone email me offering to buy it. Should I sell it? and at what price?

Would people really be interested in buying (quality) copies?

Does anyone like the style and want to offer me freelance work?

Thanks again guys.

# would anyone buy it???!!!!
Knock them out at about standard wall length oh say 5' longish and i'll have one. of course the price would have to be reasonable *turns out pockets un-zips fly does elephant impression*

IMHO they pay emin faaahsands for crap that quite frankly, I wouldn't even use to wipe the arse of your (not so) little doodle sir.

for a decent quality copy.

# £15-20? I'd buy a print!
My little daughter would love colouring one of these too!

I love it. Reminds me of those long MC Escher drawings (Metamorphosis?).

I've just thrown all my biros in the bin. How can I pick one up knowing just how much I underuse such a humble tool!

# reasonable price?
oh first born child should cover it..

No seriously I have no idea how much it would cost (or how you would go about having it reproduced) but the 15-20 notes figure mentioned elsewhere sounds reasonable

you could always speak with a wallpaper manufacturer.....

Incidentally having looked at it for the umptillionth time now I can't help thinking you could make it your 'magnum opus' by expanding it sideways. (or failing that animating it HARD!!)

# I find myself extremely fortunate
to have witnessed this beautiful piece of artwork. It completely puts that utter shite that was burned (particularly that crass tent)a few weeks ago into perspective. Those idiots wouldn't know 'art' if it jumped up and fucked both their eyes and ear'oles!
Your dedication to your work is amazing as is the actual conception and composition and especially the execution with simply a humble biro.
For goodness sake, if you do market it, which we all hope you do, don't get ripped off by 'agents' etc. Think about it first. The T shirt idea I don't think is so good, as only one maybe two would be bought by one person and they would be viewed completely out of context. The tall wall drape print would be best, and a limited edition is the way to go. I won't put a price on it as that is your prerogative and also depends on the media you print it onto.
I will just say that I would be very pleased to have that drawing hanging in my study with all my other treasured pictures.
Very, Very well done Sir, and I echo all above sentiments that it is the best I have seen since joining B3TA. Good luck with any marketing and make sure your talent is not wasted just posting on boards! I will contact you directly shortly. Best Regards, Chilli Phil.

I have been once around the world with my beautiful new bride, having stopped and stayed in seven different countries over four weeks and seen many of the most awe inspiring sights that exist.

This pic is still the best thing i have seen in years.

God bless the internet, god bless Lazlo Jose Biro, and god bless Nobby Nobody. Despite raging Jetlag, and having a thousand and one better things to do, this has already been printed out and stuck to the spare bedroom wall until a proper print is available for purchase.

For once, Woo (and indeed Yay and his brothers) fail to come close.
