I’m a stencil artist from Vermont (US) and recently we painted the largest World Cow in the country using over 100 handmade poster board stencils and spray paint.
My team consisted of Mike, master exterior painter and guy that gets the job done right, Katerina, apprentice and member of DJ Barry Art crew, and Dennis and Niki who commissioned the project. My wife and daughter are also crew members and helped paint the cow along with everyone else who happened to show up at the right time. It was a community effort.
The World Cow is both inspirational and educational. It makes it easier to teach geography and the map of the world to a toddler. Kids love looking at animals.
Most people will drive by and just see a holstein cow. I usually have to point out the spots when I’m selling prints and shirts.
Keep a look out for smaller versions of this cow. When I’m not painting street art, I’m usually hiding woodcuts for people to find.

I reused most of the stencils
This was difficult to layout alone
