'Starry Night with Blue Box' or 'Vincent Travels'

Inspired by 'Vincent and the Doctor', this is a Photoshop collage of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" and my blue box made to match his painting style. Please do not copy or use this image to resell or alter without my permission.
I'm sorry that I had to watermark the heck out of this image. It's suffered way too many thefts and imitations. Imitating it is one thing but don't just lift my image and present it as your own artwork.

Random question but do you sell this anywhere as a mouse-pad?  I'd love it for my desk!

Sometimes called "Vincent Travels".. I just can't decide between the two titles, so it's both!

I know it has been a while since you posted this, but I searched for this on red bubble, guessing you took it down after so long. Is there any way I can buy this in poster form? Is it out there somewhere still? Thanks! I really love the work.

Hi Terry,
I just found your brilliant Starry Night with TARDIS over this past weekend, and I must say, I LOVE it! I would be thrilled if you would grant me permission to use it as the cover picture for my Facebook timeline. I am using it as the wallpaper on my iPhone and on my computers. Those are private, obviously, and are not being seen by anyone but me. Facebook though, is quite public and I would not dare to use your fantastic art there without your consent. So, may I? Pretty please?

My I use your image as my photo on my debit card? I would love to see this every time I pull that little sucker out.

Also, I saw someone was having a little conniption over the possible violation of copywrite laws. All of Van Gogh's works are in the public domain. However, since you altered the work by adding the Tardis, you could apply for copywrite of your image. Public domain images that have been significantly altered, ie. The Mona Lisa with a mustache, are eligible for copywrite protection under U.S. regulations. Just a little bit of legal trivia. :)

Do you mind if I use this for my debit card photo? I would love to see it every time I pull that little sucker out.

Also, I saw that someone was concerned about possible copywrite violations. Van Gogh is in the public domain so no violation there. However, if you wanted to, you could copywrite the collage you did. As I understand it, by adding to the original, you can copywrite this image. Just like the folks to put mustaches on the Mona Lisa can copywrite that image. Weird little bit of legal trivia.
