Pixar Screen Print Details - Tom Whalen, Michael De Pippo and Dave Perillo

Limited edition screen print posters have increasingly been gaining the interest of collectors in recent years and thanks to that rise in popularity, we've seen several Pixar-related posters released. The screen prints that have been released to date are - Monsters Inc., Pixar (25-year anniversary), Toy Story and Brave and we'll be reviewing each one of them as well as detailing how we custom-framed each of our prints below.

The prints are jaw-dropping in their detail, colors and totally unique point of view. Their popularity is clearly seen by the fact that the prints sell out in a matter of minutes from when they go on sale - often times, you'll end up buying the print on eBay or from an art collector because although the prints are given an official release date, the time that they go on sale is random (announced on Twitter the day of the sale) or only sold at exclusive events.

We've had ours carefully stored away for a while now and didn't want them to be unseen any longer - so we decided to custom frame each in a two-inch black wood frame with reverse-bevel double mats and museum-grade non-glare glass. We spent an enormous amount of time finding the perfect color mats to compliment the prints without overpowering them - yes, we're perfectionists! 

Below, we have included high-resolution photos of each of the Pixar-related prints that have been released to date.

The first Pixar print to be released was 25 Years of Pixar, created by Dave Perillo and was released in two editions of 150. The standard print was first available for order at the D23 Expo on August 19, 2011 and the remaining stock was then sold through Acme Archives Direct. The "Luxo Jr." variant was available at the D23 Expo on August 19-21, 2011 with a very limited quantity available for purchase online after the event. Both 12" x 36" editions retailed for $50.00 (USD), are hand numbered/signed by Dave and came with a certificate of authenticity. 

The difference between the standard and variant edition can been seen in several places throughout the image. In the standard print, Slinky Dog appears in upper left and lower right-hand corners, whereas in the variant, Luxo Jr. and the Pixar ball appear in those corners. In addition to those changes, you will also notice that Mike appears behind Sulley's arm (instead of in front of his arm) in the variant as well as the fact that WALL-E is holding his cockroach-buddy in the standard edition and the boot (with plant) in the variant. There are other slight differences in colors which you can see from the image below.

The next print to be released highlighted Monsters, Inc. and features the likes of Boo, Sulley, Mike and Randall (among others). This poster, created by Tom Whalen was released on September 2, 2011 and was sold in two editions (both 18" x 24"). The standard 4-color print, sold through Mondo Tees, was released as an edition of 365 on September 2, 2011 and retailed for $45.00 (USD). The 5-color variant was sold through Sideshow Collectibles as an edition of 140 on October 28, 2011 and retailed for $79.99 (USD). Both editions are hand numbered.

The standard and variant editions are the same in their design and layout - the differences lie in the colors and the fact that Randall is not "cloaked" over Sulley's left shoulder in the variant edition.

Tom's passion clearly comes through on his creation - he even noted, "I'm so proud to officially kick off mondo's series of pixar posters with one of my all-time favorites, Monsters, Inc.! I can't explain how cool it is to be able to work with a property that you have so much respect for. Add in the fact that my son is a huge fan of the film as well (he's been watching this movie on a near-non-stop loop for the past year), and it's pretty much a dream come true".

The largest print of the group (24" x 36") is a tribute to Toy Story and was also created by Tom Whalen. Tom noted that, "My goal here was to capture the awe and wonder that swept all of the toys in Andy's room (with the notable exception of Woody) when Buzz arrived on the scene. At any rate, I think it's only fitting that this poster series ends with the first pixar film, which unbelievably, was released all the way back in 1995".

The standard 6-color print was released through Mondo Tees at a retail price of $50.00 (USD) and was a hand-numbered edition size of 540. The print was sold in limited quantities through the Mondo website on May 10, 2012 while the remaining prints were sold at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema event on May 31, 2012. The event was supposed to be an outdoor screening of Toy Story where you could partake in games and purchase the poster as well. Unfortunately, poor weather conditions lead to the cancellation of the event - but guests who had tickets could still get a shot at purchasing the remaining stock at the Mondo facilities (also in Austin, TX) before others could.

The 6-color variant print was sold on May 11, 2012 through Sideshow Collectibles at a price of $79.00 (USD) and was a hand-numbered edition of 150. The differences between the two may just appear to be the colors, but if you look closely, there is a Luxo lamp in place of the walkie-talkie next to the left of Slinky Dog.

The Brave-inspired Change Your Fate screen print is the most recent print of the bunch and was created by Michael De Pippo. This 4-color print was available at San Diego Comic Con on July 12-15, 2012 and was a single edition of 300 (each hand numbered with certificate of authenticity). The $60.00 (USD), 24" x 18" print beautifully weaves the portraits of Merida and her Mother in stunning simplicity.

Although there isn't a variant available to purchase for this print, Michel noted that his original vision for the print had the Brave logo much larger (shown in the photo below), but ultimately it was chosen to go with the smaller logo.

One other interesting fact to note about Tom Whalen's prints is that he will also sell his artist proofs through his site. These are especially sought after because they are a much smaller edition and he will also personally sign each one as well. Here is what we know about the artist proof editions he has sold - 

  • Monsters, Inc. standard print artist proof - edition of 15
  • Monsters, Inc. variant print artist proof - appears to have been sold at one point, although we cannot find details (if you have information, please let us know).
  • Toy Story standard print artist proof - edition of 42 - retailed for $120.00 (USD)
  • Toy Story variant print artist proof - edition of 23 - retailed for $160.00 (USD)
A sample of Tom's signature can be seen on the image below (from the Toy Story print).
