Lackadaisy Growltiger by tracyjb Lackadaisy Growltiger by tracyjb
This is actually two long pages. I figured them for a reasonable amount of work to take on all at once, but the background drawing turned out to be extremely time consuming - all that art deco in the speakeasy. Agck. Cumulatively, they took longer than any of the pages I've tackled before...though that's probably evident by the lapse of time between updates. Apologies (um, as per usual).

As a side note, McClure's (which appears in the dialogue in the latest update) was a once prominent political and literary publication that saw the conception of muckraking journalism. A writing staff mutiny eventually led to its transformation into a women's magazine in the 1920's.
I throw a lot of references to history and popular culture into the comic, but it may be that I'm really only entertaining myself by doing this (not that I have any real qualms with that ;P). I plan to add a list of some of the more obscure references to the Lackadaisy web site in the near future...for the sake of pedantic fun.

Dancin CATHooray for pedantic fun!!!

And huzzah for me understanding what muckraking is!:kittehla:

Actually, we happen to be studying this time period not only in history, but also in English (we're reading The Great Gatsby). So I'm really thankful I came upon and fell in love with your "Lackadaisy," because now that I sport a personal interest in this era, it's really easy for me to pay attention as I can relate what I'm learning to what I see here in the comic! I wish school was always like that....

Lightbulb Hey! I just thought of a question I'm going to ask! meowwoo 
(Ooooh, hope it ends up in a comic!!! >3< No pressure, lol.  cat face

So we recently read. Sonny's Blues in class and for the whole story I could't help but picture Lackadaisy characters.

did you call this comic growltiger because of the poem by T. S Elliot?

-oh well. I guess i can't expect you'd remember that. we had to get you remarkably drunk just to get your measurements.

I couldn't stop laughing at that! Well done, well done.

The clubs on the doors don't go with the tone of the picture. They look like they were cut out of another picture and pasted. Also, the clubs are not shaded.
