It's built into the TC kernel.
The TC kernel is patched with very few patches and one of them is the boot logo.
If I recall correctly, the pacth file contains a lot of data startements that define the image, so I do not think you would find an ordinary image file anywhere.

It's a patch to the kernel source...

If you look at http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/tinycorelinux/2.x/release/src/2.6.29.1-tinycore.patch.gz, you'll see a whole bunch of numbers that are the tinycore logo - I've no idea how, but you need to change these to modify the logo

See http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/HOWTO_Linux_Logo_Hack
for how to replace the framebuffer boot logo.

Basically it's just a text-format PNM image, with the accompanying changes to some files to enable it.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Just copy your logo in linux kernel source code with the same name of the logo you selected.

Can't we separate the bootlogo from the kernel by setting it inthe bootloader(grub,syslinux)? That should make it easier to configure by editing the config file instead of having to muck with the kernel sources.

The bootloader's "splash screen" is separate from whatever the kernel displays during boot - since you don't know what kernel will be used until after the boot loader finishes its job.

I tried making a splash screen for grub4dos and it worked - but it looked terrible on my 1080p monitor because the image is limited to a tiny resolution.
