Different lines for different minds

I know this sounds impossible to achieve but I recently told a peer that I wish I could draw as fast as you read the art. In my comix work, I yield towards "less is more" but ya gotta know what exactly to convey or it falls apart. Composition and character design is key. Anyway, I prefer the minimal drawing model where story supersedes the drawings. Where image becomes text.

Some artists love to draw the nitty gritty and lots of fans/readers love to immerse in detail. I get lost in the ornate so I prefer simple, albeit clever, storytelling solutions for narrative clarity.
