Trompe Monday

- From time to time, I’ve been pleased to showcase some mural paintings by my friends, cartoonists Tom Hachtman and his wife Joey. She has a company out of New Jersey which paints murals and commissioned Trompe l’oeil paintings.

Last year they went to a Parkland, Florida home and painted Venice by moonlight in a dining room.

This year they returned and painted the Coney Island boardwalk by daylight in an upstairs hallway.

(Click any image you’d like to enlarge.)

Here’s the group working on the painting.

These are some detail shots.

Joey did the people on the beach.

    Tom is such a great guy and terrific artist.

    His “Gertrude’s Follies” is amongst the top alternative comic strips of the 80s and, sadly, amongst the least acclaimed.

    I’m very glad to see this post.

    I was wondering where in Coney Island this is? Also, would you have a hi-res photo of this you can send me?
