Paste Up!

So I am going to be doing a mural/Paste up in a salon in town and I need to practice. I convinced my friend Reed to let me do my first one in his garage. He said I could do anything I want. Since he is a USC fan I am trying out some USC designs. Also since I have never done anything like this I am trying to figure out how to make it so it looks good and easy to put up and layout. I have found a lot of websites that tell you how to make the wheat paste (the glue) to put it up. So now I am mostly working on how big do I want it and how detailed do I want to get. Since Reed garage is at my house I will have to see it everyday so it will have to look good. I might do a MMA one instead of USC, But I don't know yet. The picture is just a ruff layout of my first attempt with the a poster program that cuts the art work up for you. Right now I am working with 5'x5'. Its pretty big and i printed this one out on letter size paper so 8.5"x11". Its like one big puzzle haha. Hopefully this weekend I can start.

Here are some of the websites I used to find stuff:
