This can be seen in the numerous red shirt designs that constantly wind up having compression artifacts in the areas that started out as just plain red areas.
I actually had the problem with my shirt, with compression artifacts appearing in the orange, but I managed to change the settings in my design program to produce better quality images (at the cost of larger file sizes, of course).
The other issue, of course, is that there appear to be 8 colours, not just the 7 we're debating:
This might effect the resub as well, since there was only talk of one extra color earlier.
As for the pixels, I really don't think it's a matter of compression so much as being an issue of a designer taking a full-on photo and not converting it as accurately as he'd planned. But I'm just an angry bitter cynic, so that presumption is based only on jealousy, not the designer's succession of silhouette work speaking to a possibility of serial "sourcing" in his art.
