The basics

I turn on the music - jazz, blues or 70s rock and roll are preferred.

Then I use a photograph to begin the design process.

I always start with a drawing using black and gray pencils - all shades, all varieties - to plot the shapes.  Then I let the lines flow.

Sometimes I decide the drawing should be used to create a painting of the subject too.  The drawing provides the basic lines but I always make changes as I work. After all it's a creative process.
