I was in the middle of working on a very serious minded digital painting when, for whatever reason,
I felt I needed to take a break from it to paint something lighthearted and fun. What I ended up with was a gang of jazz-inspired cats, and this is how I somewhat inadvertently got started on Lackadaisy. It's Mitzi, Freckle and Rocky, but early incarnations of their designs. They look somewhat different now that I've had a chance to develop the characters further.
