The process

I am "writing" my next book in a 5 x 7 hardbound sketchbook using very tight thumbnails. I have around 14 pages mapped out so far and this particular scene also happens to be a Christmas scene. Bonus!

And here is how it looks "somewhat" polished. I say "somewhat" cause there is still a deliberate aesthetic choice I am making and will always make whenever I draw my comics. I like it to look simple and uncluttered. I am most concerned with simplicity and the way a page flows. Like for instance I really like the first panel in this page but may go back and change some of the other panels later as the swirlies and such clutter it up a bit.....I was constantly redrawing panels from MTS.
