Getting Ideas

¨You cant go to the grocery store and buy ideas, you have to think them up yourself.¨ Stein said. He sometimes just sat at his desk half the day with no ideas, but usually they come to him.Stein would start with thumbnail sketching, then go to over it with black ink. One of the advances he can do now is coloring the pictures in with color. Usually most of his ideas come from what happened in the world or what happened to him.

Characters

Mostly in Steins comic strips or cartoons, he put the same characters in different pictures.For example, if you see a little girl in a pink dress, in the next cartoon that little girl is a mom.Stine also likes to put personality into his characters.
