The other day I was feeling down so I decided to try to draw some Ivy Pepper faces. I actually scanned this in the school library but forgot to try to fix the settings…

Aww.  I like your take on her!

Thank you, those of you involved in producing these.  The quality is just superb once again, and I can’t really begin to explain how much it means to be able to listen to and share these audio episodes.

'Cool cat' is his story and he’s sticking to it. (‘Medicated crapehanger’ doesn’t have the same appeal.)

It seems like once a year, I have to sit down and make another Lackadaisy video.  When I saw this particular comic though, I knew it was my destiny to make it a video.  Plus, it has Mordecai, c’mon.

The Saga Of Rex- Part 1

By Michel Gagne

The great first part of the animated adaptation of the Saga of Rex, the series Michel Gagné made several years ago for the Flight Anthology.

Beautiful work by a great craftsman of the animation world. He was able to make this with the support of generous folks via kickstarter.

Gigi is the kitten I found last summer, late at night, hiding out under the cars in the office parking lot.  She’s just over a year old now.  
I let her outside in the backyard for a little while today where she skillfully stalked and captured…an apple.  I didn’t have the heart to tell her she was doing it wrong.

I wish these were higher quality photos, but I didn’t have any that better demonstrated what an unrelenting goof she is.

Question & Answer

I hate to be a bother, but is mordecai asexual??

Well, if he’s not, he’s got everyone around him fooled.

Even if I had seen ROTG as of now (I’m planning to!) I would hardly miss the opportunity to draw Walking Dead AU Rocky and Calvin~


Maybe cats would be a natural fit for the zombie apocalypse too. =)

Question & Answer

Hi there! I have a couple of questions-- first-- why cats (why not birds, or dogs, or multi-species community)? Secondly, is the Lackadaisy universe confined strictly to cats as the dominant, most intelligent species (in the same way that humans are) or had you ever considered introducing characters based off other animals to the cast? A cheeky third question: have you ever drawn any other characters in the same style other than cat-based characters?

1.  They seemed like a natural fit for a story about morally ambiguous, shady or downright sinister characters (give or take a multitude of stray cat, alley cat, jazz cat, fat cat puns and idioms, and perhaps the oft repeated assertion that they are nature’s sociopaths).  I suppose I just felt that the mythos of the cat and the mythos of the gangster resonated well on the same tightrope balance between villainy and charm.
To be perfectly honest, though, I was also predisposed.  I like cats. 

2.  Cats are the only anthropomorphized animal in Lackadaisy and it will stay that way.  Discussing it taxonomically is putting too fine a biological point on it, though.  It’s not quite that literal.  Each character is the concept of a person with a cat-like critter there to represent them for whatever visual interest, levity or playfulness that contributes to a story that, while grim at times, should never be dour. 

3.  Yes, I’ve been drawing all sorts of animals from realistic, cartoonish, or fantastical angles all my life.  Most of it is either work related stuff I’m not at liberty to share here or older art that I’m reluctant to share here because it generally looks like garbage to me now.  I’m there’s some interwebs sediment you could dredge up easily enough if you’re that interested in seeing my old anthro art, though.

Mordecai! (lackadaisy) Preferably hiding ontop of Victor to avoid something gross

"HOLD STILL WHILE I SHOOT HIM." 
After Mordecai refused to give a local homeless man money, the frustrated mendicant decided to relieve himself in the hit man’s direction. Few things cause Mordecai to jump as he did, but he still asserts to Viktor, after they stuff the body in a cranny down a nearby alleyway, that if he had not made that strategic though uncharacteristic move, human waste might have splashed its way onto his shoes.

Had to think of what might actually cause mordecai to jump on viktor

Heheh.  Almost any kind of vermin would do the trick, really&#8230;but that too.
