Anyone for a large print?

I was pretty chuffed when I got an order for a 50 inch print last year but I’ve just beaten this size record by a substantial margin. The nice folks at Austin Bergstrom International Airport have licensed one of my pictures of the lone star sculpture outside the Texas State History Museum for use in a large banner inside the main terminal. Final print size 276″ x 180″! I’ve just shipped them the file (after a lot of careful rescaling, sharpening and noise reduction) and it was a whopper to process, taxing my PC to the limits (or, more precisely, taxing my PC’s hard disk paging to the maximum).

I have no idea when the final banners will be displayed since I gather they are to be used to fill a space that is usually occupied by an advertising billboard but keep an eye open if you are flying through AUS over the next few months and you may see this somewhere near the security lines.
