I generally keep a sketchpad near me, and I sketch out ideas for cartoons or other interesting things that I see. All the items in the "Sketchpad" category were taken from these sketchpads. I didn't start keeping exact dates on things until later, so most of the dates are estimated.
Most of the sketches are done with regular black gel pens, though there are some that are done with nib pens or markers. Sometimes I go back and take an idea from a sketchpad and flesh it out for a final drawing or Etch-a-Sketch art.
