For the occasions when I lack the drive or the ability to just sit down and draw my panels out, regardless if I can see what I want in my head, I quickly run to the kitchen, find a meat hammer and proceed to beat myself over the head for about 5 minutes.

If that doesn't work I always go for the acid.

Or you could also sniff your india ink. If none of this works, just blot some ink on the board, do a quick Rorschach test, and just add dialogue boxes and word balloons to it, describing the "scene" for everyone else....

I know that by now you have probably remembered how to draw, but answering this question just sounded like way too much fun. Unfortunately, I now realize I don't know what to say... um- call a doctor I guess. Sorry. (Man do I feel like an idiot...)

Good luck,

i must say i'm a little concerned about the
acid references.

any one knows a fat ass blunt will get those
creative juices flowin'.

seriously, do like i do. draw a scene from any
t.v. show, any genre and replace the characters with people you know or comic
characters. nothing too fancy, you know. just
a little something to get that art muscle flexin'. (example: MAD ABOUT SCOTT&JEAN)

Draw something just for fun on shitty paper--a big piece of bristol is too intimidating.
