The climate of these years... That's it!
These scene would perfectly fit in Zootopia which recently came out, just random though ya know.
The work itself is just marvelous though, I love your style!

Oh wow, its just so well colored.  The only comfort I have is that I now color better than what you used to LOL  Wish I could get a commission from you in this kind of quality.  but something like this would take ages and your a very busy guy.

Hey! I'm the commissioner.

You nailed it. It was the live version of 'Hey Pachuco' from the 'Caught In the Act' album that directly inspired my to commission Dave for this piece.

Amazed at how dynamic everything is- really captures the feel old school 1940s jazz bands and the club scene that made it popular.  My favorite is the frilled lizard- that cat knows how to swing, daddy-o

Aw man, that some good ol' fashion fun! Well, except for the guy with the flower. Poor guy.

I seriously love this piece: the outfits, the swing band, the scenery, the personalities, the motion, everything. Looking at this reminds me of the years I played jazz. Man those were good times. Thank you for making my day!

But pretty much anything from the Swing Jazz revival would fit!
