I find it inspiring to get out pencil and paper sometimes. Maybe it's just the benefit of looking away from the screen, or maybe the tactile world stimulates something different in the mind, but it can really help with brainstorming.

After lots of permutations and rearrangements, this is the final storyboard for A Will for the Woods. The process really took off once we moved from digital to analog, so while it might look chaotic at first glance, to me it still feels like an elegant solution to a puzzle.
