Triptych Octopus

I've loved these prints since the day I laid eyes on it. Like, cant get it out of my head love. ( and isnt that room great?)

However, it has the price tag of $3700.  ( click here for source ) or $5,000 at Plantation Design...
So, after getting free money from Groupon last night, I skipped on over to Art.com to see if they could help me out.
And they kind of can.

Here is a pretty close version, I'm not thrilled with the blue background ( would prefer the black )
But after coupons I'd only pay $25 a print...( unframed though ...but thanks to joanns 50% off framing, i might be ok )

Thoughts?

*edit*
I had a friend photoshop it, I'm going to be printing it at Kinkos! :)

  4. I'd get some dark brown stock paper and draw that baby myself! I could do that in a few days with a white conte crayon

  5. I like it. I think the frame color will determine the mood it sets. A white frame will give it a more beachy, airy look and a black or brown frame would give it a more sophisticated look IMO. Either frame color will look great in your house!
