Hi Scott,
 
I do both, pencil drawing with camera lucida then scan the drawings and finally digitalize the drawings with a Wacom Intuos Drawing Tablet and Adobe Illustrator. Check Coleman (2003) about digital inking. It is also possible to use digital images although I have the experience that a pencil drawing is beneficial. Wacom has a new drawing board that has a display screen (Cintiq series), but this is much more expensive than the standard drawing tablets.
 
best, Michael
