Nighthawk Clerks

Kevin Smith's masterpiece, Clerks, was released thirty years ago today.  It's one of my favorite movies of all time.  When the movie came up in conversation in the break room at my job three years ago, one of the newly hired associates mentioned that her brother created a mashup of Clerks and Clerks 2 with Edward Hopper's Nighthawks.  I bought a print of this piece from her that her brother signed.  It's a beautiful piece that's loaded with easter eggs from the two films.  I had it framed and matted, and it's been hanging on my living room wall ever since.

Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of the artist (I can't make out the signature) or the painting, and the person didn't work for the company for very long. If anyone out there knows anything about this artwork or its creator, please reach out to me @NeonRocketship on Twitter.
