Robert,
Thanks for the kind words and encouraging reaction to my work.
Please tell Diane at Fanquest that I say hello!

I'm happy to hear that you have discovered Kabuki.

Artist I knew, Raymond Thunder-Sky dies
TUE, 11/2/04, 11:40 a.m.

A fascinating artist whose work I've purchased several pieces of.
Last year I had begun making a documentary of his work and life.
Filming him work and talking with him.
I was at a Halloween party with him last year filming it at Visionaries and Voices, (the art studio for artist with learning disabilities that Anh and I have been involved with).

His father was the last fullblood chief of the Mohawks and used to appear as a regular on the Roy Rogers show as "Thunder-Cloud".
Raymond was dressed in a clown suit at the Halloween party, but he wears a clown suit everyday of his life.

Read this for more info on him and his work:

Obituary: Raymond Thunder-Sky, artist
-------------------------------------

He wore a hard hat and any number of outlandish clown outfits, usually with ruffled Elizabethan collars. He carried Magic Markers and drawing paper in a tool box and frequented construction sites.

Few knew Raymond Thunder-Sky's name, but he was a familiar figure around town for three decades. He was a shy, quiet, rotund man who, without ever intending it, became a Cincinnati icon.

Raymond Thunder-Sky died Thursday at his home, a resident home operated by the Catholic Care Corporation. He was 54.

His father was Richard Brightfire Thunder-Sky, the last full-blooded chief of the Mohawks. His mother was Irene Salatsky, the daughter of a Hungarian nobleman with ties to the Hapsburgs of Europe.

Although he never was formally diagnosed, his caregivers believed he had something akin to autism. This made it difficult for him to communicate verbally, but he made up for it by communicating through his artwork. And his themes were always tied to the never-ending cycle of demolition and construction.

Wherever the Cincinnati skyline was changing, Raymond would be there, drawing the scene in electric colors, creating the world the way he thought it should be, replacing ordinary buildings with Clown Suit factories, Card Trick manufacturing facilities and Native American freeways.

His ability as an artist was discovered only a few years ago, when a couple of caseworkers with the boards of mental retardation and developmental disability for Hamilton and Butler counties launched a program called "Art Thing," which later evolved into "Visionaries and Voices." The idea was to showcase the art some of their clients were creating. Raymond was one of the first Art Thing artists. In the first Art Thing exhibit in Over-the-Rhine in 2001, he sold four drawings for $100 each. His work later was exhibited in San Francisco, New York and Washington, D.C.

He is survived by a brother, Michael. Services: 11 a.m. Thursday, Arlington Memorial Gardens. Other arrangements pending. Neidhard-Gillen Funeral Home, Mt. Healthy, is handling arrangements.
Publication Date: 10-30-2004 (david wecker/ the cincinnati post)

Native American Burial Services will be held at Arlington Cemetery on Compton Road near Mt. Healthy on Thursday November 4th at 11:00 AM. For directions to Arlington Cemetery phone 521-7003. Memorials can be made to the Raymond Thunder-Sky Fund through 5/3rd Bank, Melissa McCarthy of ARC of Hamilton County contact person phone: 821-2113.
For more information contact Bill Ross - cell phone 476-5629 or Visionaries and Voices Gallery at Essex Studios at 2515 Essex Street in Walnut Hills.
Raymond has also been a member of Base Gallery in Over the Rhine since 2000.


Re: Local Visit?
TUE, 11/2/04, 4:37 p.m. - In Response To: Local Visit? (The_Crawler)
OK, so I'm a huge fan of Kubuki, and I'm new to the boards...I've been sitting atop a Kubuki #1 that I've been dying to get signed by "The Main Mack" himself, however, I never see his name on any conventions local to me. I live like a block from Busch Gardens....(in Tampa)...Does this most talented man ever come to Florida?...I mean, we're fine now...there won't be any more hurricanes this season!
Welcome to the board!
Thanks for reading my work.

I usually sign at Orlando's MegaCon every year, and I've also signed in Miami and Fort Lauderday a few years back.

Feel welcome to check this board and davidmackguide.com for updates and news.
Kindest regards,
David


Re: Heroclix questions for mr Mack
TUE, 11/2/04, 4:42 p.m. - In Response To: Heroclix questions for mr Mack (titi-bolt)
 
Hi, Mr MACK!

I just bought some Heroclix game (a DC Starter and some Marvel boosters). I found the game fun and made some research on the Net and found that Kabuki's characters were existing.

Here are my questions: 1°)Were you part of their creation, regarding the aspect of the character and the power given?

If you mean the points or #s or game playing aspects, I really wasn't involved in that. I just suggested they make it consistent with the characters in the books.
2°)What do you think of the result?
Happy with the little creatures
The Scarab sculpt is probably the best. I also like the Siamese design.
3°)What do you think of the game?
I hear it is a lot of fun and very addicting. But I've never played it.
But I meet people at conventions who have begun reading Kabuki because they played the Kabuki characters in the game, and then wanted to learn more about the characters and continued to read teh books!
4°)Do you know if Echo will be part of a next Marvel collection?
That would be a great idea. I don't know though.
respectfully and friendly
titi-bolt
Best,
DM
