This one takes Banksys homage and replaces the drunk English man with an anteater that is widely known around the internet and the subject of many parodies itself.


This photoshop was done by user "lolsurfer" for a photoshop contest. It is called "NightMuppets" and has characters from the Muppets/Sesame Street.


I believe this is a German book. It is called "Mutts" and is by Patrick McDonnell.

This one comes from flickr user "wytrab8" and is titled "NightRabbits". Humanoid rabbits star in Hillary White's version of Nighthawks.


This parody comes from from a user named "~sv-chan". It is a Nighthawks parody using characters from the Ranma 1/2 Jaoanese anime cartoon(left to right: Kuno with the legendary pheonix, Ryoga, Nabiki, Ukyo).


No idea where this came from. It shows someone dancing and 4 other people watching from an outline of the diner.

Rockos Modern Life

These are from the cartoon "Rocko's Modern Life" that used to air on the kids channel Nickelodeon.

The first two are from season 1, episode 12, called "Who's for Dinner". The diner is actually called "Nighthawks Diner".

The other one is from season 4, episode 11, called Hypno Puppy Luv.

NY Nighthawks

As part of a photoshop contest, user "MrXegil" created this photoshop of the diner covered in graffiti as it would probably be in today's New York.


This one is unknown where it comes from. The caption reads "With apologies to Mr. Hopper". It is basically a black and white interpretation of the painting.

Matt Feazel did this stick figure interpretation. The diner is just simply called "Diner".


This is another example of actual birds at the diner, done by user "Method" as part of a photoshop contest.

This is called "Cafe Hadleys" by Frank Bürmann. I have no idea what is going on here. It looks like a very random mess of childrens toys left outside the diner.

This is the cover of Berlin's "Tip Magazine", from November of 2001. It shows the top candidates for the city council elections in Berlin: Klaus Wowereit (SPD)-[the new mayor], Dr. Frank Steffel (CDU) [outside, because loosing the elections], Gregor Gysi (PDS), Günter Rexrodt (FDP) and Sybille Klotz (Grüne). The diner has changed names to "Kumpelnest".


This one is evidently from a Calendar from the Hussel company. It has a christmas theme to it. The diner is shown mirrored and a young girl works as the attendant. There are christmas decorations in both the diner and the background buildings. Four Santas sit at the counter.

The Blue Jukebox

Chris Rea did this interpretation called "The Blue Jukebox". The viewing angle is mirrored and the diner now has a more blue tone to it. There is a jukebox in the corner as well.

This comic frame was part of something else that I dont know where it was from. It was done by Götz Wiedenroth and has German text in it.


No idea about this one. It was done by sabine asi-ais and has a sketch recreation of the painting with some real life people photoshopped in.

Grand Opening

This version by Kleines Arschlochs is titled "GRAND OPENING TONIGHT !" and is from the book 'Arschloch in Öl' (Litte Asshole in Oil) by Walter Moers. There is a little character behind the counter waiting for the customers that are not coming.

I have no idea what this one is from. It appears to be a cartoon of some sort with the caption in spanish.


Another take on turning the diner into a McDonalds. This time by user "billgx" from as part ofa photoshop contest.


This one is titled "Insomniacs" and was part of a photoshop contest and was done by user "ClumsyJuggler". This one has a few other works of art mixed in with the Nighthawks painting, including the famous "American Gothic".
