For years newspapers used these wider than wide portrait monitors, there are lcd versions but id say theyre expensive , normally they have something similar to a 2:1  aspect ratio and Are pretty big, look for one of those

The reason for this is that I want to create some extra long images and display them without having to dual-screen. The border in-between the screens would for me personally ruin the impact. The images will probably be static but I still want to use a digital monitor for that brightness and colour.

I am a student at NCAD currently in my final year so this all has a grand purpose and will hopefully make a huge difference to my artwork.  I think it could communicate my idea alot more powerfully than just printed images because my illustrations are focused on virtual environments and all things digital.  These OLED illustrations would really have a bit of P-ZAZ!!!! and IMPACT!!!!!  that could my viewers at the degree show a far better experience.
