Beethovenís ninth symphony is his last and strongest symphony, the culmination of all his previous works. There is a finality to it and a freedom to that finality.

Re: David -- ever an influence, down at NKU!
SUN, 4/7/02, 11:32 p.m. - In Response To: David -- ever an influence, down at NKU! (Jubal)

Hi Jubal,

I remember making that diagram for chemistry class. I didn't know that it is still being used as an example. Thanks for the story!

Please give my regards to Julia Bedell!

Best,

David

Well,,,

in my Chemistry 100 course at Northern, taught by a professor Julia Bedell, the class had gotten to acids/bases, and more specifically, how batteries work.

Prof Bedell (a very good teacher) likes to take the extra time to incorperate the class into various examples, when teaching a new concept... and on this ocasion, she had prepared a dissected car battery for display, as well as a smaller (looked to be a AA) alkaline battery, dissected on a stand, with a chart behind it labeling the parts. The alkaline battery display, she introduced as the work of a student whom she had taught eight years ago (or so), who later became a cartoonist and returned as an alumni to speak. I immediately thought -"No, it couldn't be!" (I only know of one other "cartoonist" who graduated NKU about that time, Todd Hueser, but he never returned to speak, to my knowledge).

So I waited until after the class ended, and asked if she could remember the student's name who made the display. She couldn't right away, but did remember that he had an impressive portfolio of asian-influenced art. Immediately I was like, "Was it David Mack?" and to her answer in the affirmative, I said "Yeah, I'm a fan of his work!" She was delighted, and related that she used the display quite often, because people liked the colorful way it was composed, and it still held up well (though she did remark that the text was a bit too small). I told her I would report this story to the message board here.

Anyway, it gave me a chance to have a nice conversation with a respected faculty member, which also provided a cool little twist on how I looked at the rest of that day. Like, am I truly giving all I've got on all of my projects, and will what I do be remember after i'm gone?

And, through this life strange and wonderful, it is nice to see examples of others who HAVE (and are) putting out 100% and create a resounding effect on their environment. Not to get too deep in philosophical mind-ramblings... but I thought it was worth recounting!

Re: Can't find Kabuki
SUN, 4/7/02, 11:36 p.m. - In Response To: Can't find Kabuki (jenipher)
I have a question for anyone here who might be able to answer it.. My local comic retailer doesn't stock Kabuki. I've talked to the manager of the store repeatedly and he says that he "doesn't take special requests." I'm not sure what I should do to fill out the rest of my Kabuki collection. Any suggestions?
Hi Jenipher,

Thanks for trying to find my books. And for reading them.

Like Michael says, you can order books directly from me. Use either the online list of books that Michael Lee mentioned in his post, or use the checklist page in the back of each and every Kabuki book.

And for anyone from this message board you orders, I will be happy to sign the books if you request it in your order.

Best,

David


April signings: New Zealand, Australia, Pittsburgh
SUN, 4/7/02, 11:46 p.m. - In Response To: Armageddon-Mr Mack. (Jimbo)
Hey David, can I call you David?

Anyway, your coming to N.Z soon huh? Have you been here before?

I'll be at the Gotham signing on Thursday evening, I hope your flight goes well.

I was wondering if it would be o.k to bring a camera and get my photo with you? I'll be brining along my sketch book to hunt for a autographs anyway.

Hi Jimbo,

Thanks for the kind words. This will be my first time to New Zealand.

I will be at the Gotham signing on Thursday, the Armegeddon con on the weekend. Will be happy to sign any of my books that you bring or buy. And cameras are fine too. See you there.

Last reminder:

For the rest of you, I will also be teaching a "Master Class" at Western Sydney University on the following friday. Then I will be doing the con at the weekend. When I return to the states, I will be signing at the Pittsburgh con with Bendis, Andy Lee, and Mike Oeming.

At each signing, I will have original art (DD, Kabuki, Scarab), Kabuki T-shirts, Kabuki prints, and Kabuki paper backs and hardcovers.

See you there.


Butoh Mask, Kabuki Calendar in new PREVIEWS...
SUN, 4/7/02, 11:51 p.m.

In the current order catalogue, in your local comic story right now.

If you want either of these things, please be sure to ask your comic store to order it. They have to order it right now from the current Previews catalogue.

The Butoh mask is the last of the Kabuki Masks. Your retailer will probably only be ordering them if you ask them to. Same with the calendar. It may be next to impossible to get either of these items if they are not PRE-ordered right now.

Same with the new Kabuki bust from Moore Creations. You can probably still get it if you have your retailer advance re-order it right now.


Team Up book in stores next week...
SUN, 4/7/02, 11:54 p.m.

The issue of Ultimate Marvel Team up with Rick Mays, Andy Lee, Bendis and I [#15] should be hitting stores this Wed.

It is worth it just to see Rick's and Andy Lee's artwork.
