I either take out my sketchbook or grab some loose paper and sketch either from imagination or reference that I have on my computer. Also I've taken to doodling while I am on the phone or waiting as some work is printing (I operate a digital press).
Mediums vary but I mostly use a pencil or a pen. Sometimes I take the drawings home and finish them up there. A good many wind up in the garbage though.
Once I get home I also like to work in either watercolor or gouache before I turn in.

These are the first two drawings in a brand new sketchbook. I used a photo for reference on both though I exaggerated and changed the one of the old man a good deal. The other is a photo of my wife that I took. They were done on my lunch hour at work so I spent about a half an hour on each. I used water soluble pencils and a brush pen filled with black ink on both drawings.
