Graffiti artist returns to Solaire Bethesda sidewalk tunnel (Photos)

The mysterious artist has returned to the construction tunnel alongside the Solaire Bethesda luxury apartment project. This time, he or she has left renderings of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and a mystery man on the wooden wall.

Colonel Tom Edwards: You speak of Solaireanite. But just what is it?

Eros: Take a can of your gasoline. Say this can of gasoline is the sun. Now, you spread a thin line of it to a ball, representing the earth. Now, the gasoline represents the sunlight, the sun particles. Here we saturate the ball with the gasoline, the sunlight. Then we put a flame to the ball. The flame will speedily travel around the earth, back along the line of gasoline to the can, or the sun itself. It will explode this source and spread to every place that gasoline, our sunlight, touches. Explode the sunlight here, gentlemen, you explode the universe. Explode the sunlight here and a chain reaction will occur direct to the sun itself and to all the planets that sunlight touches, to every planet in the universe. This is why you must be stopped. This is why any means must be used to stop you. In a friendly manner or as (it seems) you want it.

Jeff Trent: So what if we *do* develop this Solaireanite bomb? We'd be even a stronger nation than now.

Eros: [with disgust] Stronger. You see? You see? Your stupid minds! Stupid! Stupid!

Jeff Trent: That's all I'm taking from you!

[pistol-whips Eros upside the head]

That "mystery man" is Al Pachino from the Godfather Part 1

Fabulous sketches! We need more Audrey Hepburn in our lives. Marilyn's a plus, too.

Hint to Equity One: incorporate these at Westbard. Better for a "sense of place" than what the Planning Department has suggested.

Would be better than most official public art. The painted wall on Arlington is a mess.
