    Found this while browsing through Google Images:


    Save for an anachronism (which in this case is a very minor quibble), this is one of the most impressive illustrated representations of the street I have ever seen!

    What anachronism?

    Elmo's brownstone, and the other apartments in the background, considering the illustration depicts the street of the 70s.

    There's another one of 123, I believe; I'm pretty sure these were sold as posters or something. It's gorgeous and I'd love to hang it on a wall somewhere. Hopefully a wall of my own.

    Here it is. It's from an art exhibit called UnReal State, from Tim Doyle.

    The name definitely rings a bell.

    But both are simply just way too awesome for words to even describe.

    This is fantastic! I can imagine Mr. Hooper closing up for the night, and everybody on the street going to bed.

    Take a look at this:
    The artist wrote an article on this, saying his father worked for CTW during the 70s, that he brought him to the studio to visit on day in 1970, and he didn't recognize the street at first, because beforehand, he had only seen the original straight street, on a black-and-white TV.

    This kind of reminds me of the kind of work Jamie has done on the various graphics throughout MC.

    Wow, that art there is so realistic and wonderful. It almost has the feel of a photograph.

    I'm hoping it was just garbage day. :grouchy:

    If you look closely, you can see Bruno the Trashman in the first picture, and Ernie and Bert in the window of 123 in the second picture. (Well, I think it's E&B, anyway. I could be wrong.)

    I had no idea there was a video showing off the work that was put into this... it's AWESOME; here, watch it, right now, this minute, don't put it off, watch it.
