It's an order of evaluation thing (and a little bit of a gotcha).
Here's a simpler example:

In[1]:= px:=Print[x]

In[2]:= x=5; px; x=.

In[3]:= px/.x->5

The reason your images still displays is because after the error is
outputted, the replacement rule fires: eg

Graphics[Line[{{0, 0}, {0, x}}]]
% /. x -> 1
