A rational person will not expect the world to conform around their ideas. They understand that they must conform to the conventions of the rational world. Therefore, all important breakthroughs are made by irrational people.

David Mack Interviewed for Bleeding Cool C2E2 Article
Thanks to Gregory Baldino for reporting that David Mack chatted with him about C2E2 for an article on BleedingCool.com.

Autograph on Apple iPad at MoCCA
From the Mid-Ohio-Con blog:
In addition to the great roster of indie creators and publishers at MoCCA, I was psyched to find a few of our good friends from mainstream comics in attendance. Chris Giarrusso and Jacob Chabot were sketching up a storm for fans when I visited their table. I picked up a great Mini Marvels piece from Chris featuring the Silver Age X-Men and I also discussed a couple of promotional pieces that he’s going to do for Mid-Ohio-Con 2010. I also got to spend some time with David Mack, who gave my iPad Adobe Ideas sketch application a try with his autograph and also reminded me that his new title, Philip K. Dick’s Electric Ant had just hit the stands that week.

Second Frida Kahlo Painting
David Mack has kindly shared a scan of a painting featuring painter Frida Kahlo, which was created for MoCCA founder Lawrence Klein as a birthday gift for Mr. Klien's mother, who is a fan of the surrealist painter.

Mack & Kabuki Mentioned in Article
From Newsarama.com:
The Icon imprint was founded with the exodus of two Image titles back in 2004 with Bendis & Oeming's Powers and Mack's Kabuki, but has gone on to be the birthplace of several new creator-owned series over the years including the just announced XO series from Bendis and Alex Maleev.
