David Mack Mentioned in Mike Parobeck Article
From ComicBookResources.com:
In regard to who he was taking influence from during this period in his career, the line art of Jaime Hernandez became an undeniable influence in all of his DC work. From Alex Toth, he learned the importance of economizing and simplicity, never over-rendering his figures or designs. During his lifetime, he could count fellow artists like Kelley Jones, Brian Stelfreeze, Matt Wagner, Alex Ross and George Pratt, as fans of his work. Mike even took the time to help other young artists -- including an up and coming illustrator named David Mack, with whom he would correspond with, offering letters of advice and encouragement.
