I'm glad you like it.
I don't hate either of them, or recall saying I hated them. I just don't really promote them of examples of my work.
They aren't projects that I was in control of in terms of the whole package.

But definitely some little gems in some places. And lots of flaws and weak links in other places.

I can still look back at my old stuff and acknowlege the gems and charm in some parts, even though other parts are crudely handled, or, at least, less sophisticated than I would do now.

Wow, you got some old school works!

Re: Creators... where do you see yourself...
04-11-05, 07:17 AM

I'll probably just continue to use the mirror.
Especially during the shaving.

The people on this board

Now that I'm all segragated into my own board

Scarab Panda News
04-12-05, 02:31 PM

Still on schedule.
Below is my question to Diamond Chuck Terciera and Chuck's response:

Is the Panda still scheduled for April?
*** They are on the water from HK now and should hit port around 4/13 so we should be on schedule.

So good for that. And I think they are only $12.99.
That's a great price for a stuffed animal.
Guys, you should get one for your girlfriend. Or potential girlfriend.

Girls, You should get one for your girlfriend.
And guys, you should get one for your boyfriend.

Then give them the Scarab book to read so they see the Panda in it and it will be something special.
It is a love story after all.

I didn't get any response, so you drove me to this.
It was the only way.

NIce story!

That just begs to go into an upcoming letters collumn of Kabuki!

With your permission of course.

My best to you and wife!
And glad my art could hopefully have been of help.

Hi Kat Amano...

Thanks for the Eisner regards!

What do I have to do to get Kabuki on your websites list of must reads and preorder books?

Re: Finished sculpt of new Kabuki statue
04-15-05, 09:49 AM


The first Kabuki statue from 7 years ago was around $120. But this one is quite a bit bigger, so I don't know.

I'll post it here as soon as I have the info.

Thanks everyone :)

Very nice of you.

Re: Dawn...

I'm not sure what that means.
But thanks.

I did see the new issue of Maxim today and her photo turned out well.

And they mentioned Jeff Amano's new book Ronin Hood which has a character (Lady Fujiko) that is based on her.

I just did a couple of paintings for the book of her as the character.

[QUOTE=stephen]You don't like James Jean? or did i read this wrong..... I enjoy James Jean over any cover artist right now. I'd probably enjoy Mack but he hasnt put out that much work lately.
I like Jean too.

Hey I've been working non stop!

I did put out 4 full Kabuki issues in the last 9 months (Kabuki #4 leaves the printer this week), so look for it on the stands, yo!

I know, I think you mean my cover work. I haven't been doing as much covers since my Alias and DD cover gigs.

But look for my new cover work on RUULE: Ganglords of Chinatown TPB.

And my cover on Atomika.

My cover on the new Tori Amos 2006 calendar to be out soon.

And I just finished two paintings for Ronin Hood featuring Lady Fujiko. The Fujiko character in the book (and my paintings) is based on Mandy Fujiko Amano (the new issue of Maxim plugs the book with her interview and photos).

And look for an oversize hardcover collection of THE ART OF DAVID MACK which will collect ALL my Kabuki covers, and ALL my other cover work!

So be on the look out!

Also a new issue of Kabuki: REFLECTIONS for August! 48 page of new art stuff! Covers, sketches, figures, fine art paintings and more!

And hey all, thanks for the kind mentions and hopes about my Eisner nomination!
That was great news!
