This is a fairly normal progression for a strip. It came to me during a BART morning commute.
The frontispiece was originally supposed to be a whole bunch of pods – then I decided that a single pod with a trademarked symbol would be a much better choice.
Note that in the scribble, once I've established the scene (very roughly), subsequent panels only show the differences to the preceeding panel. The main thing is to let the idea out.
