Ivy...without the cat ears.

Something I started a while back, then decided to finish in the wee hours of the morning over the past few nights. I think I really just had a gnawing anxiety that my most recent paintings were looking repetitive, and I felt the need to do something slightly different.

Anyway...hurray for the the 20's and helmet-hair and wearing ridiculous, frilly things on your head.

Lackadaisy Volume 1 books (in English) are available here.

Lackadaisy web site and comic are here.

I'm just discovering your work and it looks amazing!
I love the look of Ivy here and the many gorgeous details. I especially like how the background subtly changes into an old photograph on the left side. Love

I've thought of this bobbed hairdo... Louise Brooks and Colleen Moore.

I love 20's fashion so much. And your artwork. Reading Lackadaisy is so high on my to-do list, but I want to have proper time to really sink my teeth into it!
I remembered you when I got an assignment to create a dress-up game with an ostrich in 20's clothing :D
