My illustrations start out as small thumbnail sketches. But sometimes I concept those thumbnails in my head and dive right into a final, which might be executed digitally. I've found that if the idea is strong in your imagination before you do anything, it has the potential to be memorable with its viewers regardless of whether is created by hand or mouse.
