I have this stack of paper that I’ve accumulated that I’ve erased on too many times while working on a commission (which need to be clean, finished products), or that I’ve accidentally splashed coffee on while working on something else, and those pieces of paper are reserved for drawing my personal comics on. I know that I’ll ultimately clean them up in photoshop and no one will see the original anyway, so I don’t care if the paper looks fresh or not (whereas commissions that are going to someone else I try to keep as clean as possible).
When someone discovers my boxes of original drawings, they’ll think I was nice and sloppy. But really I’ve just told myself that my drawings can’t be precious or it will be a barrier that prevents me from making work, and making work quickly.
