Lackadaisy Spaghetti by tracyjb Lackadaisy Spaghetti by tracyjb
I'm not sure which is more difficult. Trying to write conversation that comes across as entertaining, or trying to illustrate it. With action, it's easier to be interesting. Rocky and his tendency to veer violently from one topic to the next compound the matter. But he can't help it. That's just how his brain works...or doesn't work, depending on how you look at it.
Ah, well. Here's hoping it's not too incongruent to understand.

Rocky and Viktor.

Viktor is my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE. I think he reminds me of my Ukrainian grandfather and uncles who are FAR too eager to beat up potential boyfriends. And girlfriends. Anyone who looks at us girls funny, really. Possibly they may have a problem.

TOday I realised that reading Viktor's lines with a mouthful of chocolate makes it sound better.

His distraction with the oily rag becomes easier to understand once you read about what he does to the pig farmers... heh.

LOL! Spaghettie noodle jokes... :XD:

I love Rocky's bouncy, optimistic attitude.

Rocky, you kill me.

Is it just me, or do I dare detect that Rocky has a thing for Miss M?
Hanada-chan Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2008
I bet Viktor-san is sitting there thinking: "what is he saying?!"
Or trying to say...

The expressions are delightful, and I like how you do their hands. Not completely human, more catlike...

"You wanna hear my id-"
"Get out."

Jebeltaloon Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2007
Victor remindes me of my dad. Because of the accent.
wanderlustartist Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2007
You have a style, that's intriging, but also very confuzzling, but I'm sure I'll catch've got moxie, and I happen to like that in artists!

So I'm going to put you on my watch list :D
Zguns Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2007
I absolutely love the series :D
IrisAyame Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
I just heard the mp3 of this comic through the link from the Lackadaisy website! It was awesome!
Honestly, I was tentative at first, it sounded like just some random kids doing the voices, until about a quarter of the way through. Because I had imagined Rocky's voice differently so I guess that's why, but then the voice for Rocky really started to rub off on me! Oh, this would make a fantastic cartoon! I think that kid should do the voice if it did!

i just want you to know that now, every time i cook pasta, i keep thinking "you are like limp spaghetti noodle!!" and then i grin a little.

You have to love Rocky, or you'd kill him...
Oblith Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2007
Methinks theres a pyromaniac here..
Lol I love his smile....
FloatingBubbles Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2006
My gawd. You can't possibly have any idea xD

One: I love that cute expression on Rocky's face. He looks like a wee kitty x3

Two: Rocky reminds me of me, how eccentric he is with...words :D

Three: Your art style is quite edgy indeed! I love it especially when you draw the cats smiling all...toothy and whatnot :3 And Crazeh.

Four: I probably woke half the house by now: You don't know, but I read your Lackadasical comics aloud and change accents and everything. It's like a play. Only for blind people. 'Cuz I don't do much besides a change in facial expression for action. But, I would if my but was not now merged genetically with this chair.

Five: I like counting by numerals of five. If I don't end evenly by twos, fives, or tens whilst counting, I combust.

*o* Viktor... I LUFF HIM! Aw, you're such an amazing artist. I can't help but love your characters! :D

I simply LOVE the way Rocky's mind works!!!
MakeshiftKitsune Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2006

Inspectornills Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2006
heheh, just gotta love that guys sense of humor XD

Awesome work! :D

You kill me. Seriously. I am so greatly amused by these comics that one day I'm going to die of laughter. I know you have no idea... You see, this is the kind of stuff that would amuse me anyway (it's so witty, and STRANGE, and expressive, and exciting sometimes, and in such a cool time period, and involving cats!!!)

But my friend Fontenar (she's here on DeviantART) created these characters (Loki and Talimon) for a slave RP site we're on called Patientia... And they are so much like Viktor and Rocky! She didn't copy them--the furthest thing from it--but they are so alike (except in ENTIRELY different circumstances and in ENTIRELY different forms)! It's so /weird/ how much they're alike but different at the same time. But I love all four characters so much!

And your comics are really great. You're so good at dialogue and comedy and expressions! Um... go you! *cheers* ^^"
tracyjb Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2006
Thanks very much.
I'll have to go check out Fontenar's art...=)
WritingRin Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2006  Hobbyist Writer
xD I'm sure she'd like that. She likes your comics too. ^_^

i LOVE rocky's expression in the fourth panel! those bambi eyes are adorable...and so funny. :XD: one of the funnest things about your comics are the characters' expressions...they're all just right and so funny (or cute.).
CrazySwedishGirl Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2006
Haha, you can't help but to love Rocky! :XD: And his big, wide, maniacal grin!
hikaritoyami Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006

I like where this one is headed:clap:
moefredthegreat Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2006
From one topic to the next, eh? That's called free association thinking, and it's actually a sign of high intelligence. Hmm, maybe Rocky could turn out to actually be a genius.

Oh, I just had an idea! Once you've done enough of these comics, you should put them all into a single volume and publish it!
