As noted at Leonard Cohen Mural To Be Created At 1420 Crescent St, Montreal, the graphic in the unveiled model (below, left) does not show the actual image of Leonard Cohen that will be depicted in the mural. And, it seemed to me that the sample offered was – well, a tad bland. Naturally, I felt obligated to offer more compelling alternatives. If, for example, Montreal wanted it darker, the Leonard Cohen Montreal Mural Alternative Version: You Want It Darker (below, right) might work. Of course, Montreal has long claimed Leonard as Our Man, so perhaps the banana-munching Leonard Cohen from the I’m Your Man cover might be appropriate.
The alternative atop today’s post features a graphic of the dapper Canadian singer-songwriter from the Popular Problems era.
