This is a repost of 4DE's dA Journal: If you haven't read it, please do! I absolutely love Lackadaisy (one of the very few webcomics that I actually bought a print copy of) and an Eisner award would be well deserved.
As you may have heard, Lackadaisy has been nominated for the Eisner award for Best Digital Comic.
As its publisher, I would be remiss if I did not make an honest effort to help Lackadaisy cross the finish line, because if it actually did win, it would simply be beyond awesome and wonderful. And, I know, I am certainly biased as its publisher, but I publish Lackadaisy for a reason: because I love the story and characters and believe in it. Moreover, I believe in Tracy, who works tirelessly, always foregoing sleep, and her own social life, opting instead to bring Lackadaisy to life.
I am humbly asking that anyone out there who is eligible to vote and enjoys Lackadaisy to please consider it as your choice for Best Digital Comic when voting.
Voting for the Eisner Awards is currently going on and will continue though June 13th at www.eisnervote.com (or by paper ballot if you want to print one up and send it in).

-All nominees in any category

Again, if you, or anyone you know fits into any of these categories, I am humbly requesting that you consider Lackadaisy as your pick for Best Digital Comic when you cast your votes for the 2011 Eisner Awards.
