Lackadaisy Perennial by tracyjb Lackadaisy Perennial by tracyjb
Ivy...without the cat ears.

Something I started a while back, then decided to finish in the wee hours of the morning over the past few nights. I think I really just had a gnawing anxiety that my most recent paintings were looking repetitive, and I felt the need to do something slightly different.

Anyway...hurray for the the 20's and helmet-hair and wearing ridiculous, frilly things on your head.

Lackadaisy Volume 1 books (in English) are available here.

Lackadaisy web site and comic are here.

I love 20's fashion so much. And your artwork. Reading Lackadaisy is so high on my to-do list, but I want to have proper time to really sink my teeth into it!
I remembered you when I got an assignment to create a dress-up game with an ostrich in 20's clothing :D

The thing I like about this piece is how regal it looks, and how it matches the "playing card" theme (I spot a clover in there!) - The clothing and headgear give me a "Queen of Sheba" vibe

You have such a talent for drawing, whether it's hilariously adorable cats or strikingly realistic humans. Love the colors and the amazing details in this picture, and especially like the way the background fades from shiny and new to wrinkled and grayed. I was wondering, might I use this as an icon on Livejournal? Totally your call, of course. :)
