Lackadaisy Breakdown by tracyjb Lackadaisy Breakdown by tracyjb
The first half of the latest comic update (I'll post the rest shortly). I'm sorry these are always later than I anticipate. I don't mean to make faulty projections - these just take an exceedingly long time to produce sometimes.

All prior pages are most easily read in the Archive.

-----------

Lackadaisy Volume 1 books are available on Amazon once again.

Comic updates and other Lackadaisy stuff can be found on Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook.

I love this sepia rendering in your Lackadaisy comics! Plus, painting certain details red (blood and the flower) against the monochromatic art was a nice touch. Very good!

MAN that cat is so menacing. I almost thought it was a weasel for a minute. I love the atmosphere you created in the exterior shots of the car.

Most likely, it's referring to the scarlet fever pandemic of the early 20th century.

As Rocky slowly reveals his past, I marvel at the depth of your character development.
His story, and that of Victor, and Zib, are most intriguing.

this is a work that is beyond what you could merely call "quality, professional" work. I swear I bet numerous people would hire for someone with everything they got for that kind of talent :D
I actually went through the whole pages of Lackadaisy in two days . Hope I don't come off as creepy for saying that ..

I love how Rocky is so...calm and kind of serious for a change, makes you think what kind of a person
he actually really is.
Anyway, a really great job with the faces and the background, both are awesome!

Dear Tracy, I've been enjoying Lackadaisy for some years now and taking great delight in every detail, especially the buildings, the clothes and your wonderful cast of characters.

As much as I'd already formed the opinion that you are the most extraordinary graphic novelist I've ever encountered, and that you art work defies adequate description, after viewing your latest installment I've been forced to revise my opinion.

You are beyond extraordinary.

Via Facebook I began raving about it with a friend, and then this morning I recalled that you had a presence here on DA. - So here, unedited, are the comments I shared.
I mean -why not? You deserve some praise. We all do.

"OMG - that's just awesome. Her style has taken another jump. Did you see the way she is using *frames*?! Simply incredible. and the phone call to Miss M. and just *everything about it*!!!
<[Lookafar] starts shouting and going manic with wonder>"

"... and colour tonings, and overlapping speech bubbles, and the scene where Pepper finds out more about Viktor, .. and the punchline right on the end.
THAT WOMAN IS AN ABSOLUTE GRAPHIC NOVEL GENIUS!!!!!!!
<swoons>"

"Yes, yes, very dynamic storytelling going on. Every page is absolutely cluttered with the most beautiful details, and lots of authorial fun."

"and the tea cups - how the characters handle them, gesture with them, move them from hand to hand .... there is nothing accidental there."

- So there you have it: a fly-on-the-Facebook-wall moment from an adoring fan. <swoon>

My pleasure, ma'am. As an artist myself (of words - as in books; and yes I've had a satisfactory number of them published now), I know how vital it is to know that one is appreciated.

So please carry on!
Lynne and I are great fans. (She got me started at the Marigold)

My favourite panel has to be that look Rocky gave the "weasel-snake" cat when he saw his marigold.

Kinda badass.

..okay VERY badass.

It's very...unnatural to see Rocky so still and well, not Rocky. It's plain weird, I can't look at him without feeling creeped out lol Man, I hope he gets better soon.
