TOOL Adult Books and Movies, oil on panel, 10x8"

TOOL Adult Books and Movies, oil on panel, 10x8"

The signage and awnings on this corner in El Cerrito caught my eye, being an interesting eyesore. Only the icky Golden Gate Adult Books and Movies store still exists, just the signs remain for “Shirt Laundry &” and “TOOL.”

The “Tool” sign made me laugh since it has many connotations including one I’ve heard  used lately to mean a dorky, loser of a guy (e.g. “What a tool!”)
