Surprise Attempt #1 – A positive pregnancy test. Result: Too sketchy looking. Hand looked funny. Crumpled up and thrown in trash.
Surprise Attempt #2 – Mary when the Angel tells her she’s gonna pop out a kid, even though she’s a virgin, oh and by the way, he’ll be GOD! Result: Too cartoony. Crumpled up and thrown in the trash.
Surprise Attempt #3 – A dollar bill on the ground waiting to be picked up. Result: still on post-it pad. May soon be crumpled up and thrown in trash.

I’ve got a horrible case of "illustrators-block", if that even exists.
