Oh i just remembered i have some other stuff i have to send
you too. (metal)
I see red birds often here. The Cardinal is our state bird. Sometimes I
will look out the window and see one in my yard or when walking around
i will look closer at DD17 ?
But you know i never see any red bird's sheesh.
sometimes hummingbirds too, but that is less common here.
Just returned from HEROES CON!

We had a blast. It has been a couple of years since I was able to go
and I have to thank Shelton Drum for inviting me and for him and his staff
for putting on such a well organized and incredibly friendly con. Also
thanks goes to Dustin who ran the Heroes booth for being so cool and hanging
out with me and my pals. ANd the con had some great parties for the attending
Dan Brereton was at the table on one side of my table, and Paul Pope
sat on the other side of me. Andy Lee was on the other side of Paul. It was great to talk with paul and he hung out with us every night of the show. We have talke a lot at other shows and on the phone, but it was really
fun for Paul to hang out with me and my friends all weekend and make trouble,
and discuss our current and future projects and art philosophies.
Also, Pope and I made plans to collaborate on some projects together.
I'll keep you updated on this!
I met lots of fans from this board (and Anh's e-bay auctions), Including Rafel, Craig Marze, CTH from the Bendis board and moore. Introduced a lot
of new DD readers to Kabuki! ANd I did two great panels. One about writing, with Alan Davis, Louise Simonson, and Phil Jimenez, and a portfolio review
with Quesada. It was good to talk with Nanci and Joe there and meet their new baby. We talked about some very cool future projects.
Over all, just a great show to do with my friends. Oeming was there
(read Powers if you havn't), and I swapped books with several other creators. Met a lot of great creators and fans, and made some new friends, and got a lot of excercise in the evenings!
I look forward to attending next year's Heroes con.

Something else that has been happening at cons more and more is getting
invitations to lecture or speak at schools. This is something that I am
looking forward to doing in the future, but am sort of too busy at the
moment. I got a lot of invites to schools when I was in the bay area, Berkely
and other design, fashion, and art schools.
In Heroes I was honored to be invited to speak at the Kubert school
and at the Savanah College of Art and Design. Hopefully I can do more of
this in the upcoming years. I've been doing more panels at cons, and I
enjoy the speaking with people who are passionate about such things.

Kabuki helped Dave live out violent fantasies in his head instead of taking matters into his own hands...
Hello Clay, I appreciate your comments and the discussion with readers.
I hope you know where I was coming from in my initial responses to your
early posts. They are not at all polarized.
But I would disagree with the characterization of your above mention
of me and my books. I stand by the characterization in my original responsed
to your earlier posts.
Please... no name calling on the board

This is why I have a problem with dave...his line work is
inconsistent and he's making excuses just to cover his ass!
First, I never made a commitment to some kind of "consistency". THe
only consistency you will find in Kabuki is constant change and evolution.
Also, I don't have any excuses. Or any loyalty to lines. But you are
welcome to have problems with me if you want to.
Thanks for reading my work. I hope that you can continue to read it
and come to terms with these and any other problems.

I know that the name calling is often in jest. But it doesn't always
necasarily read that way on the posts.
I've seen it before recently and it just isn't the kind of thing that
I want to surround myself with.
It is OK to discuss a topic with someone, and even to disagree in whole
or in part. But the name calling adds extra baggage to the discussion that
can be interpreted wrong in print. Especially to someone who may be visiting
the board for the first time.
I'd like to keep the atmosphere friendly here. you are welcom to debate.
Just please be respectful about it.

It looks like we are closer that ever to having a firm schedule for
the artbook. So far Dec is what we are looking at. And it is good that we waited because we have many additions and improvements.
First, the book will be at least twice the size that we intitially intended.
It will now be at least 96 pages maybe much much more.
AND! IT will now be an OVERSIZE format which will let you see the work
at closer to actual size. I'm very excited about this part. It will be
a much better format for an artbook with much better paper, etc.
I have lots more details to announce about it as I confirm things with Image in the next month.
I will keep you updated.

I hope it won't be too oversized. so I can put it next to
all my other Kabuki books on my bookshelf. But if I have to I guess I can rearrange my bookshelf.
Well the idea I had is sort of like this:
The Kabuki story volumes will still all be able to fit next to each other and the volume #s of the spines should line up so that you can have vol 1-5 now and hopefully many volumes in the future all set up next to
But the SCARAB ARTBOOK will be much taller and will hopefull set up a seperate line of art books that you can group with it. For instance, I'd like to do a book of every Kabuki cover ever made (in order, and showing sketch, commentary etc). and it would be cool to do this in oversize format as well, so that you can see cover without type and much closer to actual size.
And from there, we can hopefully have a Tiger lily artbook eventually as well, so that with books like this, your taller, bigger Scarab ARTBOOK
will have company, in that you can group it with some other future Kabuki Artbooks.
What do you think?
I'm wide open to suggestions.
With all these books, I should make a set of Siamese bookends
