Aka, The Picture that Wouldn't Die. Seriously, I wrestled with this one for the better part of a month and have very little show for it except impatience. I was really digging the way it was going until I hit the background. I had really wanted to get a 20's-esque poster look to it, but just couldn't get the feel I wanted and ended up getting fed up with messing with it. Arg. Still, I like how the girl came out, so there's that.

's amazing cross referencing and attention to historical detail with Lackadaisy. The girl's outfit is also inspired by Cyd Charisse's in Singin in the Rain
