The Island of Misfit Drawings

For every image that's approved for production, there are dozens of drawings that get the "X" for one reason or another. I could easily wallpaper my house with the collection of rejected drawings I have. Some of them resurface years later, reworked or otherwise but most remain on the island of misfit drawings.

Here are some that did not make it to Easter production.
