Nighthawk Clerks

Night Clerks
James McCutcheon

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.

UPDATE: The sister of the artist didn't work for our company for very long and I couldn't make out the signature on the print, so it took me a while to track down who it was.  His name is James McCutcheon.  You can see more of his work at ArtistJim.com.
