Truth be told, we've been a fan of illustrator Tom Whalen even before we got in touch with him back in November 2010 to conduct an interview
. Who else can make retro look so current? Looks like he's got a large following based on the fact that this poster of his, that was just released about an hour ago sold out in what looks like 4 minutes (that's according to @MondoNews' twitter feed). It was limited to the edition of 365!
A few nights ago, at the Mondo Mystery Movie, Mondo announced that they're starting a new Jurassic Park poster series
. (For a brief description about these movie events, head to Collider
.) Then, just yesterday, they announced they were starting a Pixar one. Who was up first but Tom Whalen with Monsters, Inc.!
The poster went on sale at a random time this morning for $45 and, in just minutes, they sold out. Looks like we'll have to be quick to the draw next time. Until then...make sure to follow @MondoNews
