1. Start with a collection of evocative phrases (or quotations, names, titles, etc.) based on a theme. This is usually  just a matter of noticing things as you go about your everyday life. The world is full of lists. Find a list, pick out the items that best lend themselves to artistic interpretation, and make that your list.
  2. Get a blank sketchbook. Write one of these phrases at the top of each page.
  3. Go to places where cartoonists (or really, any people who like to draw) gather. Comic conventions, for example. Get some of these people to pick a page in your sketchbook and sketch something based on the words at the top of the page.
  4. The more sketches you get, the more people will want to look at your book and/or add their own sketches. Makes a great icebreaker!
