reports from Angouleme)
THU, 2/1/01, 4:27 a.m. - In Response To: Ordinary decent ... Man? (reports
from Angouleme) (french tbolt)
Hi French T-Bolt,
Good to meet you at the show.
Well here I am back from Angouleme where one of the few
good moments was my meeting with Mr Mack...(I will not complain about the
bad moments ... too much to say and better things to do!)
First thanks to Mr Mack for having been patient with me
Glad you like it! It was sort of fun.
(yeah I've got a NICE ECHO!!!!!!)
and the others peoples who get wonderful presents from you...one
question : Do you always sketch without sitting on a table?(I was really
impressed by seeing you drawing like this!)
This is sort of funny to me. At conventions I am generally standing up
when signing and talking with people. So at European cons I also draw standing
up the entire show.
A lot of people commented on this and asked me how or why I stand up
when drawing. I hadn't really thought about it. I suppose It just seems
reasonable for me to be standing and making eye contact when talking to
the others that are standing, instead of bent over the table when sketching.
Also perhaps I started standing at conventions early on in the states
so that I could use my table space to present art, instead of drawing on
that table area.
But I'm glad people seem to get a kick out of it.
I'll just say that I really appreciate you not also as artist
but as man because you were patient and pleasant as everybody could have
talked to you and ask you anything..
Thanks. I enjoy hearing from my readers. I should also thank them for bein
so hospitable. Everyone in France was very kind to me.
( what a difference with Mr MEDINA who had just signed my
books ,without any dedicace and who had not do any sketch (maybe only at
the moment I was near his stand...)to anyone or even say a word to us!)
To be fair, I spoke to Angel Medina and he wasn't feeling well. He said
that he got sick as soon as he came to France.
So Perhaps that explains some of his quietness. Also he is shy. Not
many people realize that a lot of the artists (like people in general)
can be very shy by nature. Especially when at conventions.
...Also you remembered me and introduced me to a friend
of you that were with you at the stand!Then you had add some little details
to "my" Echo and IT'S GREAT!!!!
I'm glad you introduced yourself! I had a great time at the convention
and a great feeling about France and the people that I met.
It's good to see that some artists are always simple men...
He did do some great sketches and water color washes.
Just a little word about Richard Isanove :as you a good man and a
great artist ( maybe he should stop coloring and do some art ???)!
He told me that he always wanted to draw but that it was easier for
him to get into the business as a colorist. He said he is going to try
to draw more.
In conclusion a good moment for me and a great Echo to remember
For the other posters...I'll have scan Echo for the end of the week
and if Mr MACK is agreeing I'll send it to any of you who will ask it!
Maybe I'm dreaming too much but as my name says it my favorite comic
book is the Thunderbolts...I would be in heaven if you could do a pin up
for the next Annual(I'm curious to see the team under your pencil)but IT
IS NOT A REQUEST!!!( I'll do want you to think I'm asking anything...I
had so much saturday...)no it's just an idea thrown on the board!
respectfully and hoping you had a good feeling with France and good
memories in it!
Re: Soundtrack to Kabuki

A question to all Kabuki-readers and to Mack himself: What kind of music, which bands, records or songs would you suggest as a soundtrack to reading Kabuki?
I do listen to music while doing artwork. Usually when i'm with other people
working around me. When I look at a page I did years ago I can remember
the music I was listening to at the time.
Another question to Mack: Do you listen to music while painting or
WHen I did Circle of Blood, I was listening to a lot of Nine inch nails throughout most of the issues. Also Beck, Mozart, Wagner, Front 242, Rollins, Sting, the Doors, NWA, Elvis,. I remember that in iSSue 5 of COB i was
