It used to be that I'd drag out a few pencils or charcoal sticks, a fair-sized sketch pad, and scribble down a few lines. But with computers at my disposal, most of my morning drawings are digital these days. I use Sketchpad, a multi-functional digital painting program, and a Wacom pressure-sensitive tablet with a stylus. That way I draw right on the tablet.

Digital drawing is beginning to take the place of graphite and charcoal in this studio. I often do a preliminary sketch digitally, then print it out or display it on a tablet as a reference for further development. The convenience and speed of digital drawing makes it an enormously useful tool.
