    Silly question, but what do you suggest to those of us who don’t use Illustrator or Photoshop; just pure old fashioned pencil and paper? I will try it… I *can* see myself using similar techniques using tracing paper–though there will be many physical paper layers rather than locking program ones. :P

    I wonder how it will work out for me? Thanks for sharing your secret, James!
