Illustration for Restaurant Hollow Nickel

I was asked to do a tshirt illustration for a great local restaurant Hollow Nickel. The true story behind the name is great. Basically, back in the early 1950′s a paperboy collecting for the Brooklyn Eagle dropped a nickel that fell on the ground and turned out to be hollow. Inside was microfilm from the KGB. The whole story can be read here, it’s pretty nuts, and very cool that the name was derived from local noir. They made tshirts of the design for the Atlantic Antic this year, and are likely still available at the restaurant. (494 Atlantic Ave).
