voiceROM – rejected artwork

Posted By / / 0 comments

I’ve been doing most of the artwork for the voiceROM releases. Here are a bunch that didn’t quite make the cut.

It’s funny because a crucial point of the movie is the fact that most of this clan had never met the others, as clearly stated by the dying master in the opening scene, but then we are treated to this shot of them all lined up together.

 

And finally, here is a rare look at what is on the board in the background of the ‘Boring Music for Boring Animals’ cover.SAM_0056
