Sacco and Tomine's Drawing Process

Via SeeMagazine, graphic novelists Joe Sacco and Adrian Tomine talk about their process:

Joe Sacco:

“Drawing is generally like digging a ditch. I basically know how far I’ll get each day.”

Mr. Sacco completes about 2 pages of art a week.

Adrian Tomine was “constantly fighting against an undercurrent of stiffness” that can be a product of relying too much on photo reference. His new book, SCENES FROM AN IMPENDING MARRIAGE, drawn in a looser style, was originally not intended to see publication.

"It was a welcome reminder that drawing comics could actually be fun. Not just an arduous slog towards a very distant goal.”

The article begs the question (but doesn't answer it) of why Mr. Tomine was drawing comics not intended for publication.
