Lackadaisy Whatnot by tracyjb Lackadaisy Whatnot by tracyjb
The uppermost images are samplings of new art I'm preparing for an overhaul of the existing character page on the Lackadaisy web site.

There are two Mitzi cards because one of them is a throw-away. After painting the first, I decided I wanted something with a more art nouveau look for her instead. The string of images in the middle is just an example of my general approach to painting these pieces.

The rest is rough pencil art for upcoming comic pages and a little "photograph" originally done for the forum users.
-------

Lackadaisy Volume 1 books are available from the publisher's online store here.

I'm also now Twittering about Lackadaisy updates and other goings-on from here.

Yeesh, I know, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a father. Orphans have parents too, and he obviously lost his mother later on, because you can see her in the photo. So he wasn't without parents back then. Maybe his father was already dead, but we don't know that, thats why I ask where he is!
And yes, I did read the comic. A thousand times to be honest, because it's awesome.

True that
It's just that there's a comic showing him around the same age so I figured this is a picture of him at the orphanage with his guardian and the other kids

I just guess that cat is his mother because she clearly looks a lot like him. I don't know which comic you mean, I just remember a picture of yoing Mordecai sitting on some stairs, and one of him with a school bag running. Could it be one of these?
