A friend of mine opened my eyes to the fact that Stout likes to hide a shamrock/clover in a lot of his prints. That reminded me of those Arthur books I used to read growing up, and how the author/artist used to hide the names of their kids in each book. Then that got me thinking, what other artists like to hide stuff in their prints? What are some of your favorite examples? I heard there was one in Slater's Overworld and Underworld prints, but I wasnt able to figure it out.

Wow, thats an awesome thread. A whole lot ot go through on that one.

Rubberneck, do you know if Stout puts clovers in all of his prints? I've stared at the Kill Bill Variant for a long time, and still havent found it.

Horkey puts a manta somewhere on all of his prints. Some are more obvious than others.

Here's some examples that were compiled by Tapecat.

Never heard of the clover thing in Stout's prints. Which ones can you confirm?

Might be obvious to some, but the ''human skull'' shape of the whole composition of Ansin's POTA gets overlooked by many I'm sure.

Ive personally seen them on Avengers and Reservoir dogs, maybe its something hes just recently started.

Avengers - Right by Thor's hammer and Captain America
Reservoir Dogs - I think on the right side above the cop car

Another fairly obvious one is on Whalen's Toy Story, the blocks spell out Mondo.

Ha! Never saw that.

The shadow taking a bit out of the girl's neck in Ansin's Dracula is an awesome one I didn't see for a looooong time.
