Lackadaisy Cats by tracyjb Lackadaisy Cats by tracyjb
I accidentally fell in love with the characters. I have no discipline. (Actually, I have been working on other more serious pieces too. I'll be uploading a new painting soon, I swear.) ;P

The gang from the Lackadaisy Speakeasy. Pardon my anachronisms. From what I was able to surmise, zoot suits like Rocky's were probably nowhere to be found until the latter part of the 1930s after the repeal of the Volstead Act but, well, they're talking cats.

I've been reading Lackadaisy for awhile now, and was browsing the Gallery on the site again, and had to say something. First of all, you are a character designing genius. Second of all, I dread to think of what could possibly have Rocky in the same pose as he is in the bottom right of his section

Just came here from the latest piece you did to see them exactly five years ago. Wow, they've certainly grown - and you have, too. Art, characterization, story... it's amazing.

Honestly, I personally prefer the coloring here to the more fleshed out three-dimensional versions of the characters.
It gives the comic a different feel. More charm, perhaps?
Other than that, I'm a HUGE fan of Lackadaisy and ordered volume 1 immediately after I saw your expression tutorial. :-)

YAY! This amy sound weird, but I liked the 1920s era, even though I wasn't around.
And talking cats and zoot suit FTW.
