Lackadaisy Scrapbook by tracyjb Lackadaisy Scrapbook by tracyjb
I've been working on this, among other things, pretty intensely the past couple of weeks. It's all rather silly I suppose, but I had a lot of fun with it.
It's actually just background artwork for the flap pages of the volume 1 book collection but I wanted to use that space to say a little something about the characters illustratively.
(The layout in print form will be different - more horizontal than vertical so that it spans two pages.)

It's a combination of pencil art, digital painting and utilizing old photos of my ancestors to create custom texture brushes for the antiquing effects.

The comic this pertains to can be found at the Lackadaisy web site

*tracyjb's artwork has always been of such wonderful detail, but this piece proves that there's even more detail hidden behind the artwork, with lengthy tales and entire lives lived out within her mind. Lackadaisy Scrapbook speaks volumes for her as well as for her multitude of wonderful characters! ( Suggested by SecretWalrus and Featured by skifi )

Grats on the DD (a little late to mention). I noticed the names: Vasko, Viktor Ladislav and Elijah Metzger. It also seems that Mordecai has a Northeastern accent according to his wanted poster.
W.. wait ELIJAH METZGER??? Eh??

I was wondering, did you get inspiration for Zib and Mitzy's old band from the movie, "Some Like it Hot"? Also, I'm a really big fan of circuses, so I was wondering if we might see some more pictures of Rocky's time in the circus in the future?

I love how all of your characters have a history! This was definitely deserving of the DD!
Viktor is my fave :3
