Each and every week we pick and choose through the masses of prints and pics on the digital frontier to give you nothing but the best to fill your geek needs. So on with the dump! ABOVE: Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks is often fodder for the homage/pastiche treatment, however World’s Finest Diner by Ian Navarro might just have become my all time favorite.
