We’ve got good news and we’ve got bad news. The bad news is, the poster you are about to feast your eyes on sold out today. The good news is, this poster exists and almost a hundred people paid money to buy it. Maybe things aren’t so bad after all.

Like we said, the poster sold out today. But there’s always eBay and maybe the artist will have some additional copies. Or you can just save that image and make it your phone wallpaper. You know you want to.
