Pencil, paper, and computer

Inside Adobe Illustrator: "You'll see that Von's approach, which is in fact used by many professional Illustrators, is very careful and methodical (in the best sense of these words). Before ever firing up Illustrator, Von has gone through lots of thumbnail sketches, roughs and finally produced a tight sketch that he will scan into Illustrator to use as a template he 'builds vectors'." - Pencil and paper are still the quickest way to rough out ideas, even when you're doing software engineering. The artist in this case then scans his work to use as a template. Sounds like a good plan.
