Hopp's Luncheonette

7 5/8 x 11 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches
Notes from the artist:

Homage to Edward Hopper

I designed HOPP'S LUNCHEONETTE shortly after I finished building PeepWorld. After working on the Times Squaresque environment for a year and a half, I was looking for a ‘kinder, gentler’ subject matter to involve myself with. I decided I wanted something that reminded me of growing up on the streets of Brooklyn, in a much different era.

After I got the rough design made, I realized how much it reminded me of Edward Hopper’s painting Early Sunday Morning (1930), both in it’s subject matter and it’s mood. I have always felt a strong connection to Hopper’s work.
