Hints and Thoughts on Upcoming Projects
David Mack shared several updates on two upcoming projects:
    Darediva wrote: Did you ever publish that little 8 or 10 page story you had on the wall at your gallery show? The one about your childhood?
You'll see that sequence appear in a published format very soon.
It's a surprise!

And it is just sort of a little peek at an entire story of that. That will be my next creator-owned project after the current Kabuki story. The full autobiographical story. I'm really glad you liked it and related to it. (source)

Art of David Mack:
I just wrote down the order and format for all the covers in the first volume.
Including the covers to the collections and varients, oneshots, etc., I have counted 100 covers (if I put this out after Alchemy #5). (That's if I try to shoot for the release of this in July. Or if I try to make it more of a Christmas time release, there will be more Alchemy covers in it.)

So with the opposite pages for each showing the sketches with commentary, that means the first volume will be over 200 pages (as I'll inlcude some step by step process and other things besides just the 100 covers and 100 sketch/commentary pages.

So maybe 212 to 228 pages.

It will be a very nice and extensive collection of Kabuki cover work.
And I think a lot of them will be paintings people have never seen before. (source)

Art of David Mack:
Maybe I could do an entire section of art I made as a kid. Or show an evolution of those childhood sculptures and drawings and paintings. (source)
Art of David Mack:
I agree with showing everything as well, but I think it may be best to order it within topics for each volume.

So I want to include much of my non-comic work (large paintings, sculptures, phototgrapy, etc.), but I'm thinking it may be best to include that in one of the follow-up albums after the first one devoted to the Kabuki covers and sketches.

I'd like to do one that collects all my personal figure drawings and personal studies. I have so many spontaneous sketches and nude studies, paintings and doodles of friends, etc. I'd like to show that side of my work in a volume as well.

That's the kind of art books and sketch books that I like to see and buy myself anyway. (source)
