Lackadaisy Rigamarole by tracyjb Lackadaisy Rigamarole by tracyjb
In color are Serafine (done for Italy's Top Girl magazine), Zib and Viktor. Most of the pencil art is from upcoming comic pages.
The Duesenberg (a combination of pencil art and digital painting) is Wick's, of course. This particular model wasn't actually released until late in 1928, but I'm fudging history just a bit for the sake of that fabulous art deco detailing on the Model J. I couldn't resist. I'm weak!

And though that looks something like a strange homage to "The Shining", it's actually just a little happy New Year happy New Year!

Love your art work!

Ahah! I was saying "This makes me think about The Shining's last scene" than I read your description! Eheh!
I went to see the implied photo from the movie and actually it is very different! :)

Если бы это был фильм, то думаю, что Зиба играл бы Дикаприо

My dear Tracy,
May I take a few moments out of my Christmas Day (in Brisbane, Australia (muggy, but not boiling)) to tell you that not only are you very adroit with the visuals - you are also most masterful with words.

I am prompted to offer this compliment upon coming across the following passage:

"Hair in convertibles just doesn't work the way it does in the movies.  If you've ever driven around with the top down and hair of any length beyond cropped, you know it doesn't flow back like the sleek pin feathers of a majestic eagle in flight.  It blows forward to attack your face, tying itself in tiny knots so as to better lash the lenses off your eyeballs." [ - Lackadaisy 98 ]

Have a cheerful Xmas, and may random admirers stop bothering you (at least  for a few weeks).

With nothing but due humility, whatever skill I can be said to have with words comes only in frustrating intervals otherwise surrounded by mumbles and sentence structure amounting to grammatical spaghetti.  Mordecai would not approve.  That's awfully kind of you, nevertheless.  Thank you. =)
Merry (if not muggy) Christmas!
Lookafar Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Your humility duly noted. 
As one who also minces words (more tidily than Mordecai might with a hatchet. I hope) and tosses them artistically upon the platter called 'book', I have an eye for eloquence - especially the type disguised as a wandering fool and going nowhere special.

Ha, Viktor with the boa. It suits him.

One of my favorite pieces of your artwork has to be the picture of Mitzi and Atlas kissing (the second being their wedding photo). It's just so sweet.

It seems I've fallen in love with your artwork. My god, it's beautiful! And your designs for vehicles, amazing!

Ha ha, awesome! So they were actually able to shove Viktor into a suit. I really wanted to see it and didn't know if such a thing existed. (I'm a new reader)
