I’ve read that if Jack Kirby was dissatisfied with part of a page he’d trash the page and start over. When you can crank out a page in 3 hours this is a viable course of action. When a page takes a day and a half it becomes less viable, so alternate strategies become necessary. In my case I rough out the pages (until recently) on 8.5” x 11” scratch paper, sort of as a first draft, then blow up the pages to full size and either trace or print out the roughs onto the final board in non-repro blue. These days, on the Bob’s Burgers comicbook, I do the whole job in Photoshop, never touching paper, pencil or pen. It will be interesting to see if I can go back to my analogue methods and, if so, how they will have been changed by my tenure on the computer.
