I realize the painting "Nighthawks" has been paid homage to by many people and now I'm one of them. I had fun trying to replicate Hopper's style. I missed out on seeing the original in person as it was out on loan when I visited the Chicago Art Institute. I'll have to go back someday. If you are familiar with the fighting chicken from Family Guy, then you know that this quiet scene is about to erupt into pugilistic mayhem. Original painting was sold at Family Guy art show.
