The mannequins remind me of all the statues Iíve seen in museums missing their arms and heads. I think of the Venus De Milo. Perfect woman of her era. Goddess of love and beauty. Now she has no arms. -- Kabuki: Metamorphosis #2

Robots & Reflections #8 Production Update
From David Mack:
Made a robot today.

In between drawing and writing, and finishing Reflections #8 for the printer...

It was a really nice day outside (spring decided to visit again), so in between work sets, I rummaged through both of my garages and scattered all kinds of gadgetry around the back yard and put together my first human-size robot construct machine.

I used old bicycle parts, microphone stuff, adjustable light fixtures, erecter sets, and various odds and ends. I'll get pics.

It is my height, and stands erect (on two wheels) and is standing in my back yard right now.

I intend for it to be the centerpiece of other gizmos that I put into a gallery show.

David Mack later noted:
While rummaging, I also found a robot design that I drew in fifth grade that looks kind of similar to it in a strange way (perhaps this was also a germ of the idea for the robot vehicle kids story in Kabuki: The Alchemy #7).

I'll put that childhood drawing in Reflections #8 as well.


Connectedness of Creative Endeavors
From David Mack:
I agree with that theory of connectedness to all creative endeavors.

Often you start with what you want to communicate, and then you just choose the best deliver system for it.

The way that you feel will communicate it strongest and truest.

I also find that working in one medium, gives you perspective on another.

Really the entire current Alchemy series of Kabuki is about this creative process. It kind of outlines certain steps and phases and principles that I've observed in the process of my own work, and offers them as principles that are useful in any creative endeaver, and I find that the principles used in creative endeavers are also useful in completely practical and everyday life & people situations as well.

Much like martial arts if it is approached correctly: once you observe the basic principles of it, it is transferable to any medium or situation.

If practiced correctly, it is usefull at all times and and can be practiced in all things.
