Hawk Krall, combination AHT correspondent/hot dog correspondent/illustrator, recently posted on his blog about this awesome fried onion burger illustration that he made for American-themed burger joint The Burger Map in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

These are professional giclée fine art prints, printed by the fine folks at Silicon Gallery Fine Arts in Philadelphia. I can't imagine who wouldn't want one of these (all of which are suitable for framing) in their kitchen. Choose from four designs and stay tuned for more to be...
