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 )

I love the details you put into these, I enjoy analysing each and every of them! =)

Both Atlas and Mitzi always had that detached look on their faces, even in their marriage photo... xD

Apparently "Metzger" means butcher.  So, it kind of works, huh?

"Probable alias." Meaning whoever filed the report didn't believe that was his true name.

O gosh... Nicodeme Savoy and Viktor.....

IT'S SO HARD TO CHOOSE!!!........ :faint:

lol But, speaking of the two, who do you think would win in a boxing match?
Nicodeme has practiced in the art, but so has Viktor.... in one way or another...

Remember, Sugar Ray beat Jake LaMotta.  Sugar Ray was quick and technically sound. Jake LaMotta was tough as iron and never stopped driving in.  Viktor's big n' bad but he's gotta bad knees, no depth perception, and years of wear and tear.  Nico's athletic, a boxer, and crazy.  In a no holds barred fight, Viktor might just seize Nico and crush him.  If Nico managed to close Viktor's eye, Viktor would be fighting, blind.  It would be an interesting fight to watch.

He has called her dievka, but never "devika". The language is Slovak, not Sanskrit.
