Hey Billy, do all of them have the white dots by the boy's feet? Is it due to the printing, or a camera artifact?

Also, the photos I've seen of Whalen's Nemo on ebay don't have any numbering from what I can see. I looked at photos in multiple listings. That can't be right, can it?

Did he sign all of them that were bought on Friday? Tom was there right?
I think all of them have the white dots. I've looked at about 7 different copies and they all seem to have them. Looks to have been a printing issue.
You got 7 copies? :shock:

Nice payday for you man :pint:
Employed a militia of hobos for this one.

Yes a lot of his prints have had printing errors and that weird highlighting around text for some reason.

I assumed this as well but if you look at it, it does seem like a printing issue. Regardless, the print is still killer.

Plenty of reasons, not like Mondo wouldn't have turned down an extra 200 prints worth of sales for no reason.
Tom told me mondo called him asking him if he could do some more after he had turned in incredibles, lion king and nemo. He said Aladdin is one he always wanted to do so he was happy to throw one more down with such short notice.
I then told him to shut up and sign my wood variant.
He cried.
Pretty interesting, I just hit him up on Twitter and got: "...actually "incredibles" was the print I absolutely had to do. but I had a great deal of fun with all of them."

Odds are you're just talking about the color trapping done so there were no registration issues.

If the dots are in the same places then it's not a printing issue.
