|CBLDF SDCC 2010 Auction Location and Time|
|Thanks to David Mack for reporting that CBLDF.org:|
||SeenAllOver.com launched on July 4 with a bang to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund! Now we’re auctioning off their great work, including a selection of Etnies sneakers customized by artists including Jill Thompson, David Mack, Eric Powell, and more, plus original paintings made on the CBLDF’s Live Art Stage by Tara McPherson, Aya Kakeda, Molly Crabapple, Nikki Cook, Khary Randolph, and Brian Ewing!
All bidders will need to have a bidder number, which can be picked up at Booth 1920 at any time during the convention, or at the auction.
If you are unable to be at the convention, or unable to attend the auction, bids will be accepted online bids starting Monday, July 19 until Saturday, July 24, 1:00 PM Pacific Time. All bids must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with “SDCC AUCTION BID” in the subject line. Be sure when bidding to use the item name as it appears on the website.
This is not a silent auction bidding system. All bids placed online will be used as opening bids during the live auction on Saturday, July 24 at 1:00 PM Pacific Time. In the event there are multiple bids on the same item, the highest bid will be the one accepted.
|Artwork and DVD at SDCC 2010|
|From David Mack:|
||Choosing the Artwork to take to San Diego. Kabuki, Daredevil, Echo, Alias covers, & more. I won't have it on the table so just ask. Diverse selection of 11x17 prints too.
Just got word from the ALCHEMY OF ART filmmaker that the DVD (with extra features) of this documentary of my work is about to run out of its printing. He said he has 25 left. So you if you missed it you may want to order it directly from the filmmaker online. Links at DavidMackGuide.com. And I will have about 10 of these... at San Diego if you want to pick it up there.
|Daredevil Ultimate Collection Review|
||The first story in the collection, "Wake Up", is illustrated by David Mack, and it is just simply gorgeous. Not everyone has a fondness for painted artwork in comics, but Mack's pages are dripping with atmosphere and creativity. Not only are the layouts brilliant, but he fills the background with all sorts of metatextual objects, like pieces from one of Ben Urich’s stories for the Daily Bugle.|
|SDCC Artwork, Inception Thoughts & More|
|From David Mack:|
Great combination RT @iKaLaSu: My girlfriend has been reading The Alchemy to me over skype - enjoying both the story and my naked reader.
@manwithoutfear :) That's very cool. You know I think I named those characters in Daredevil after CB in 98 before he even worked at Marvel.
:) RT @a_stoddard: @davidmackkabuki Look what happens, you talk about @cbcebulski this morning and suddenly he gets a promotion. Magic!
Cangrats to @cbcebulski on his fantastic promotion at Marvel today! Well deserved, and happy for you!

@philhester :) You reminded me, I should bring one of the pieces I did for The Coffin too.
At SD Comicon will have art from @brianmbendis first Daredevil story: Wake Up & the Daredevil Echo: VisionQuest story. One Alias Cover...
Feel welcome to look at the DD art w questions :) RT @SexualLeprosy: I apologize in advance if I pester you too much about your DD art again
@manwithoutfear These DD facts are a cool idea. Maybe I'll chirp out some of my own, or start my own list of KABUKI -Facts :)
@manwithoutfear That's true! I knew CB Cebuski since he worked for Central Park Media MANGA in the mid-early nineties.
RT @manwithoutfear: DD facts you may not know #26: David Mack named the Cebulski bros. from "Parts of a Hole" after Marvel talent scout ...
Choosing the Artwork to take to San Diego. Kabuki, Daredevil, Echo, Alias covers, & more. I won't have it on the table so just ask .
@katalyze I wonder how differently she perceives if via the reading. Sounds cool. Thanks :)
How is it different? RT @katalyze: Reading The Alchemy by David Mack to my girlfriend over skype. Interesting reading it out loud to someone
Def EA/ PKD overlaps:) RT @thehinton: Loved it! It'd be cool to read your spoiler filled take on it. It was a good companion to Electric Ant
RT @tanner: It was nice of @davidmackkabuki to create the Reflections HC so I could get such a rad birthday present. Artist edition even ...
I could go on about it but don't want to reveal Spoilers :) RT @shubbykins: Inception was fantastic. Thanks for the rec, @davidmackkabuki!
:) See you Thursday in San Diego! RT @mika_tan: @davidmackkabuki Very Matrix-y. (@_@)
It's not the top that spins or stops spinning... it's your mind.
Hope you like, Manji RT @Manji2501: just picked up @davidmackkabuki's Dream Logic! :D
Thanks Jamin- Alchemy my fave too RT @JaminL: @davidmackkabuki I just re-read Alchemy and was even more impressed. How can it get any better
RT @merryleah13: My Favorite is Volume 4: Skin Deep... It was hard choosing just one. <3 Akemi @davidmackkabuki: ALL the volumes?Whi ...
ALL the volumes? Which is your fave? RT @merryleah13: Kabuki is beautiful! Thank-you! I just read all of the volumes! Love it, read it. <3
Psychology, subconscious, loves store, and has an M. C. Escher structure.... Love it. Love Nolans films/ story structures
Then goes into Philip K. Dick territory, makes its way into Charlie Kaufman (being John Malkovich, Synecdoche NY, Eternal Sunshine)
Inception plays with some William Gibson vibes, goes into a William S. Burroughs Naked Lunch area, becomes a heist film,... (more in next)
Inception tap dances into several overlaps of favorite story tropes without being full ycatagorizable by one label. Keeps it fun & creative
Saw Inception last night. Wonderful. Highly recommended. I could go on about it at length. Great structure. Playful, coherent, thoughtful.
You can still order SCARLET! first printing sold out- going back to print! RT @BRIANMBENDIS: link to the scarlet news! http://bit.ly/9ujYbG
@tdro Haha- I usually shave it every summer between conventions. Because of summer heat :)
How do you like me with shaved head? (note: I'm the one without the mask & crown) http://bit.ly/bXtey2
Yes, Sir! RT @chris_page: @davidmackkabuki out of curiosity, are you planning on doing dragon*con this year?
@mika_tan Great! Let's meet Thursday then. I'll be at my table at Comicon all day. And I'll be at the Circle of Confusion party at night.
@mika_tan Will you be at San Diego Comicon? I'll be at booth #2729 Image Comics area.
RT @mika_tan: #FF #ÜBERWHOA @DavidMackKabuki @nomadixxx @TheRealNimoy @WilliamShatner @ConjureCognac @SFI-org @SGI-USA @sex_food_comics ...
