Some say there is a very fine line between genius and insanity. Im not sure there is any line at all.

Hey Tony,

Besides that, the other Kabuki stuff to come out before that list and since I saw you at the signing in Australia are:
Kabuki REFLECTIONS #4
KABUKI The Ghost Play
Scarab Hardcover and Paperback and the Daredevil Parts of a Hole and WAKE UP stories are in hardcover and paperback.

The new Kabuki series is starting this year, and the first issue should be in stores in a month.

Best,
David


Re: Next Mack DD Arc
SAT, 1/17/04, 3:54 a.m. - In Response To: Re: Next Mack DD Arc (Michael Goodman)
That would be so awesome. I read that x-men arc and wondered how it affects Marvel continuity.

"Only Mack could do a 6 issue arc about someone stuck in a box:P"

I would love to read David's take on this. J.M. DeMatteis (my other favorite writer) wrote a short graphic novel called Mercy, about a man who was stuck in his own mind. He also did the kraven story where spidy was barried alive for two weeks.

Ha Ha! That's great! I really dig your feedback on this and the news flash.

But I think that whoever posted this meant it as a joke!

I'm guessing it is a humorous nod (or a jab) on my stories tending to focus on a lot of the inner developement of characters as much or more than some external action.

I think it is funny. And ironically, as much as I think it was meant as a joke, I think it could be a very fun story . So thanks for your faith in me!

And just to clarify, I have no plans to do any more DD arcs for the foreseeable future.

For at least the next year (maybe next couple years if I sneak in a couple more issues like I always seem to on each Kabuki series) Kabuki is my focus. I'm really into the ALCHEMY story and it is a story with great depth and breadth (along the lines of METAMORPHOSIS, but even more so) and one that really demands all my attention to weave all the characters and ideas together.

So if you enjoyed the tone on META (and Skin Deep), you will especially enjoy ALCHEMY. And then the TIGER LILY story will come right after it and it ties into this story as well. Lots of Akemi and Noh surprises!

I hope you are as into it as I am. I've been turning down jobs left and right so I can focus soley on these stories for the next couple years. It is a new era of Kabuki!

Spread the word!


Re: Mindful meanderings of the mindless
SAT, 1/17/04, 4:14 a.m. - In Response To: Mindful meanderings of the mindless (Andy_Leeke)

My advice is to just start doing it. In any form. In all forms. Don't try to figure it all out ahead of time. What is important is that you get yourself INTO the process. Sometimes you think you have to have it figured out before you write. This will just lead to procrastination and frustration. The information comes in the PROCESS of the ACT of working. Then you connect with your creative self that is more than your conscious self. And you jump from bridge to bridge and get lost and found in the process. Then there will come a point when you realize what you are doing and why and what direction you are going in. But what is important, is that if you are a writer, or an artist, the process is what is enjoyable. Even when it is not enjoyable, it is, because you are where you should be in the ACT of it. So you just DO it. You put your all in it. And the work becomes its own thing after the fact, and wether people choose to see it as great or not will be a seprereate thing. Most likely some people will think it is great, and some people will be blind to it, and others will relate to it and learn something from it and that will be rewarding to you, and create amazing and unpredictable ripple effects in other's lives and in the rest of your lives. But not as rewarding as the very ACT of finding your place in the universe by immersing yoursefl in the ACTION and PROCESS of doing what you are hardwired to do.

If you are a writer or an artist, you will do it. Because you have no choice. You will do it wether it is fun or not. Or you will be miserable if you do not do it. And when you do it, even when it is miserable and hard and difficult work, it will be fun.

Go team.

its 230 am here, ive got loads of coursework, but i find myself wanting to write and im feeling moody. so here goes....

My english tutor told me last week i have the potential to be a best selling author. for the past 6 days since she said that its been running through my head...my mind is searching through every aspect of my life....trying to discover who i am.I have no clue how i became a good writer, i didnt even finish high school because of illness. i hated english...and now apparently i could make a living out of something im good at and like doing. The problem is... its not what i love. I cant restrict myself to words. Its shocking me that id rather be a below average artist than a world famous author. they're both just possibilities now...but anything can happen.

I dont know what im trying to say... i think its all just leaning towards a phrase ive used so many times. "you can only be great at what you were born to do" - thats become my philosophy.

and now, sudenly... eveything is different. my world has become a swirl of murky confusion, just like it was before everything happened to me.... all because of one sentence...

As big headed as it sounds, do you ever feel as if you're destined to be great, but find yourself constantly wishing you could just stay in the darkness, observing? as long as i can remeber ive felt that im either gonna do something amazing or momentus failure. theres no middlegroud for me...

i hate it.

sorry for jabbering on... just venting i guess.

Andy

The moral of the story is,
Do what you love. Forget about best selling. That can come or not.
Just do the artform that you enjoy and the rest will fall into place as you as you really DO it.

Best,

Dear Fumiki...

I sent you a letter at the beginning of December, but today it was returned to me, saying it couldn't be delivered.
I think I used your most recent address.
Any suggestions?
