Here's a demonstration of the process I use to draw a daily comic strip.

This stage is in a sketchbook and is just to get the dialog and most basic placement set up.

Here I have drawn the final sketch, enough to remember what should happen in the next stage.
I thought about the idea of not pissing on someone who was on fire
and this sequence came to me, so I wrote down the punchline to remember it.
I drew the strip a few hours later, so I was glad I made the note.

Here I am beginning to draw the final art, starting with the lettering.

The final pencil stage. Next, inking this.

Here is the strip inked, but not erased yet. You can see some last minute changes.

Here's the final ink, the stage I show on Facebook and the Seattle Star.
