Another art pile of book sketches, concepts, throw-away drawings and suchlike. The color pieces at the top are for an eventual revamp of the character bio page on the Lackadaisy web site
At the bottom is a sample color page (here's the original
) done for a foreign publisher that seems to want to do a full color book.
I tend to cram a lot of panels onto a page. That combined with multiple scene/ambient light changes makes creating an appealing palette for the page as a whole very difficult. Over-stuffed panel layouts might appear reasonably coherent in monochrome sepia, but I fear full color is in danger of looking like a variegated vomit rainbow. I'm not entirely sold on this idea.
-------------------Lackadaisy Volume 1 is available at 4th Dimension's online store
. It also appears in the April issue of Diamond's PREVIEWS catalog, so if you happen to feel like ordering it through a major bookstore or nudging your favorite comic shop to stock it, I'd be awful much obliged.
Other art and comics can be found at the Lackadaisy site
Lastly, I'm now Twittering
about Lackadaisy updates and related stuff.
