I just thought I'd include these pages to show my process in creating a comic page. This method works best for me, even though it may look somewhat crude. I tried the Fan Boy layout pads but I found the size of the image area a bit to small for me.  I start my process with my  rough script, then I break down the dialogue into pages, then edit some more with Ken's help...I often agree with some of the edits but not always! The top page with the ketchup was interesting because Ken and I got into an argument about the dialogue "clean this up!" he thought I should say " and clean this up!" which I felt diminished the impact, it took me awhile to convince him but I think it works better.
When I do my rough layouts I try to keep them simple and fluid which makes it easer to make changes. From these layouts I go straight to the full size comic page and start penciling. Both of these finished pages are posted already, so you can have a look at the changes I made.

This is my set up at the Calgary Expo back in April, best show ever! 
It's always great to have my subject make a funny face!
