Step 1: I draw my Thumbnail Sketch where I figure out the dialogue and narration on the right hand side of the page. Then on the left I figure out the images that tell the story, and how the words and pictures fit together --
In this case the bottom half of the thumbnail comic felt a bit confined to sketch things out so I spilled onto a second sheet of paper...

Step 3: I do initial Inking over the pencils --
Step 4: Erase the pencil --
Step 5: Then I Finish by thickening some lines, filling in appropriate spaces with black, and making necessary touch ups (including, in this case, the white lettering that begins this page) --
