Here's one I did assuming kids like baseball... right?
I want to make a soccer one too but I don't have much time to offer as of right now.
This is possibly the most magnanimous I can be for this wonderful project.

That is awesome though they have no idea what baseball is at their ages and being Chinese. :P

Right now we are fishing around for the best price to do the tile mosaics. The guys we talked to were trying to shaft us on the tiling because it takes so long to install. I'm talking around 150rmb (20 dollarsish) per square meter which seems ridiculous.

To be fair, this project is highly custom. Very unusual. The tileworkers you'll find will have no experience doing this sort of thing. They can follow instructions on how to install the mosaics, because they know tile, but it'll most likely be something new to them.

I hope this isn't a show-stopper. We may have to simplify things - maybe do only a few walls, or designate only certain parts of certain walls for mosaic designs.

Aww. They don't do baseball in China? Well glad you enjoyed my submission anyhow.
Thanks Mathias for breaking down the palette and everything.
I hope this comes to fruition even if as he mentioned it needs be simplified and lessened.

I had really hoped to see some of my pixels immortalized; this is a great cause too.

Wish us luck!

We are trying to find a crew to do the work for a decent price right now. The last guy was being a jerk and trying to up the price insanely for the custom tile work. It really won't be difficult since I'll supply a large print to follow with a grid.

It also looks like we may have to reduce the custom tiling to one wall per bathroom due to the cost :(

But I'll make sure it's a walk not blocked by toilets or fixtures.

The biggest bathroom I hope will have two picture walls.

Major bummer. We should've calculated costs first . . . obviously.

Oh well, it happens, just update us here with the final specs; wall dims and we'll see what we can do!

My wife found a crew willing to do all of our work and for a good price too!

They will do one wall per bathroom for us. The rest will have to be plain big tiles.

Sadly every crew is very reluctant to do this tiling work for us. Another crew have even tried to raise the cost per square meter for it to near 100 dollars, which is not cool. Needless to say I told that crew to take a hike.

Even at a low cost for the current crew they refuse to do more custom tiling walls even if I pay more so we seem stuck with it.

Now I will select three designs and then could possibly use ideas on what colour, or simple patten of large tiles for the rest of the bathroom.

I don't know much about tiling, but that price sounds really cheap for what you're asking them to do...
Anyway, I can't wait to see the finished rooms. This is a really cool project. =D
