    Getting ready to launch the first piece of a new project so I figured I'd slowly start showing off some of the early sketches.

    Admittedly I don't sketch often, but when I do they are quick and dirty. I was exploring a new type of interface size and user-control, so I ended up sketching through 200+ pieces in this manner. So a lot more to show :)

    Love that you're actually showing us early stages of your project. Too often on Dribbble, I see designers submitting finished or almost finished projects which really doesn't help the community (especially the rookie that I am) figuring out how other people work.

    Hope we'll see more in the days/weeks to come :)

    I agree with @Mathieu Mayer-Mazzoli. All the pristine shots make me feel like I need to schedule an entire day to put together my own shots...and I will never do that. I'm glad to see some WIP. Curious what you mean by "user-control"?

    @Josh Hemsley If you haven't already, you might want to consider picking up a circle stencil.

    @Mathieu Mayer-Mazzoli Thanks man! And I couldn't agree more. The process is where we can all learn so much.

    @Deanna Mitchell User-control was just referring to the different type of behaviors that this project requires. It will make more sense as I show more.

    @Seyi Ogunyemi I certainly have a few, but I tend to fallback to the tools that are within arms reach. I never know what I'm going to use :)

    Where do you buy your dot-grid paper? I bought two notebooks at Target a few years ago, but I'm running out of pages, and freaking out because I can only find them online for $20+

    @Anna Funk I hear you. I've order a few super cheap ones from Rhodia in the past, but I end up tucking them away because you can feel the cost difference. Dotgrid.co has some pretty good ones, but I always end up falling back to the Action Method's dot grid book.

    Awesome. The Action Method one looks like the best deal, even if it's still a bit pricey. I'll probably end up getting one of those :)

    Josh, you could have a stencil with it's own handle. :)

    Very much detailed process, 200 sketches, I can feel what kind of refinement that brings. Reflects in your work too. @Josh Hemsley

    Do people really waste that sort of money on stencils? I feel the definition of wireframes/blueprints is lost to arguments of skewmorphism, details and 3rd party Hyena's looking to take your hard earned money. Where do you want to spend your time? The idea/sketch or the crafting/production of final elements? @Anna Funk, I just went on a hunt for dot grid and my result was @Dan Malarkey link and for the laziyness in me, http://bit.ly/ZLXY7i Theses people were great, fast and sent me a handwritten thank you postcard! Who does that?

    @Michael Jordan Ooh, I like that one, and the price is right!

    I'm not big on printing my own dot paper, mostly because I don't own a printer right now.

    @Josh Hemsley I think you posted one of the most useful shots I've ever seen!
