Text along the top border reads "Unkl Skam Wants You" and along the bottom reads "in ART FAIR". At center, a male figure wears a red, white, and blue striped cone hat and holds an artist's palette with paintbrushes. 'Chicago' is written across the palette in red along with additional text. Two skulls wearing hats appear at the top of the composition in front of a cityscape seen from its shoreline. Text appears throughout the image.
