David Mack's Thoughts:
· "When I met her, she was a chemical engineer. But I could tell she wanted to do more creative stuff and was a natural artist even though she was doing so much math. So I got her out of math and into comics by saying, 'Drop them zeros and get with some heroes!'
She makes the amazing line of Tranimals. These include her Bunnyz, Ninjas, cats, and robots...
And she is doing her own Tranimals comics to be published by Top Shelf. She loves the Top Shelf comics.
And she has been in a ton of comics! Besides being my model for Kabuki, Oeming based the girl in Bastard Samurai on her. Bendis based Tran in Daredevil: Ninja on her, and in the new Terminator comic series, Captain Anh Tran is based on her.
And she wrote the Peter Parker chemistry class scenes for Bendis in the Ultimate Spider-Man comic and the Spider-Man show on MTV. That Chemical Engineering major sure comes in handy at times. She's like McGuyver that way.
She is my art dealer, and takes care of all the computer stuff and editorial and art direction stuff, and the Kabuki international translations and a zillion other things.
And she is way funny. She says the craziest things in public at the most inappropriate times. Which always either makes me wince, or laugh uncontrollably." (adapted from a message board post on March 15, 2004)
