Ok, I really need some help ...

I'm starting my blog site called "Tomlin's Crib" and I don't know jack squat about designing graphics. I need a banner for the top of the page that will represent the brand name of the blogsite. I was hoping for something that uses Tomlin's likeness with a picture of a house or building that represents his "crib" in the background. I think using Heinz Field as the background may work too since it truly is his crib so to speak. The vibe of my blog is going to be similar to Mondesi's House:

This is the pic of Tomlin that I'd like to use in the foreground (very cool):

These aren't bad either:

Can one of you creative cats that do this kind of magic . . . help a brother out?

After my initial design, we discussed what he liked and wanted changed/added. Here's the finished banner, for those interested. All done in Adobe Illustrator.
