i usually sketch on a white note pad, and then keep the pages i like in a folder. i prefer this method to keeping a sketchbook because it's less intimidating and also so much cheaper. anything that bothers me goes straight into the recycling bin. for this design, unfortunately all i could find were these initial doodles in my notebook. i must have skipped the pencil drawing, and worked directly on the computer.
