Uncle Boonmee won the Palm D’or at the 2010 Cannes film festival. The poster is a 24×36 inch screen print. Hand numbered. Edition of 400. On sale Friday at a random time at

If you are not familiar with Chris Ware search for his work. One piece of work he is noted for recently is his cover he did for Fortune magazine which was supposed to be on the Fortune 500 issue. He accepted the job because it would be like doing the 1929 issue of the magazine, and he filled the image with tons of satirical imagery, like the U.S. Treasuring being raided by Wall Street, China dumping money into the ocean, homes being flooded, homes being foreclosed, and CEOs dancing a jig while society devolves into chaos. The cover, needless to say, was rejected. It is posted above.
