Lackadaisy Wisenheimer by tracyjb Lackadaisy Wisenheimer by tracyjb
The latest comic update. The whole canon comic can be read in the Archive.

This required a fair bit of packaging and ad research. Surprisingly, from a graphic design angle, some wrappers for long-lived popular candies haven’t actually changed all that much in the past ~90 years. The price sure has, though. Most single-serve, packaged candies were 5¢ in the 1920s.  Among them, Baby Ruth bars reigned supreme.

the lighting is so soft and lovely, it's a great contrast in mood to the scene before
also that last panel is really cute

Before it seemed like Rocky had 'silly crazy' and 'psycho crazy' (the kind that argued about pancakes vs the one that babbled philosophy while shooting at people) - seems like getting headshot by that hearse got him stuck in the latter for the time being (not that I'm complaining, mind you :P)

Your sets/locations are always so nice, I'm especially impressed with the level of detail for this one! For your backgrounds, do you use photo references at all, or do you just do it by ear?

I still say you've really captured a lost soul from the American yesteryear here. Just a vibe I get from this whole comic that I can't shake, and I love it. There's just an authenticity there from the amount of research it's clear you put into it. I'm getting a nostalgic feeling from an era I've never lived, and it's enough to make this history major fall in love with the past all over again.

The style, the humor, the face and body expressions... it always blow my mind how you're able to convey so much emotions into anthropomorphic characters! I don't think I'll ever get tired of your work!

Just found this channel. This is the first "furry based" thing i've ever seen, that doesn't creep me out. Actually i think this looks absolutely fantastic. So much detail and i especially like the color scheme. Gorgeous.

The entire comic is on her website, lackadaisycats.com

You get to start from the beginning...I wish I had the chance to re-experience going through this comic all over again. You can watch her art improve!

No problem :D Lackadaisy's also on the Webtoon app, all issues have been converted into a more mobile-friendly format in case you prefer that (though reading on lackadaisycats is the way to go for me)

Gotta give you props for the accuracy of those recreations of product logos, TracyJ, especially that Saturday Evening Post in the corner of panel 9. :D

Now all Rocky needs is the bunny-box. :P
