Tiago's Portland Bike Piece (Photos)

This is a link
for some pictures of me painting a wall for bikeportland.org office.
The photographer, Jonathan Maus, will post more pictures next week,
whenever he brings his wide-angle lens so he can fit the whole image in
one picture.

This is the biggest image I've ever done, and it's all stencil.
