Lackadaisy Calinda by tracyjb Lackadaisy Calinda by tracyjb
Latest comic pages.

Relating to the third page, the Calinda is a dance with roots tracing back to African martial arts.  It appears to have made its way to the American South with the slave trade where it intermingled with Creole and Cajun cultures and developed a new reputation as a bawdy, forbidden dance with implications of Voodoo practice.  In sidelong reference to the Calinda dance, a girl named Colinda occasionally appears in Louisiana folksongs - the popular Cajun tune "Allons Danser Colinda" among them.

Lackadaisy Volume 1 books are available on Amazon.

I don't think there is such a thing as a fricative stop, Mordekai.

It's bitter-sweet that it takes you like half a year to produce one of these. I love the story and want to see more of the characters, but I realize that with time comes your attention to detail which is unmatched - and without it Lackadaisy just wouldn't be what it is.
Truly stunning.

That bell-man guy is hilarious.

I think you mean "sit" instead of "set" in the last panel. This is lovely, I think I'll start from the beginning instead of here lol

Thanks. =)
"Set" is intentional in this case.  It's a fairy common lexical habit to replace 'sit' with 'set' in some regions of the US, particularly parts of the South and lower Midwest.

The details on the buildings in the first 4 panels have truly stunned me. But then again, so does every other picture/comic page you draw :clap:
