David W. Mack (born 1972) is an American comic book artist and writer, best known for his creator-owned series Kabuki. Mack is known for his unique painted and collage-like work. Rather than employ computers in composing multi-layered artwork, Mack prefers to apply objects directly onto his art.

Early life

Mack graduated from Ludlow High School in 1990, where he had written and acted in many of the school theatre productions. He gave the commencement address there in 2003.[1] Mack did not attend a specialized art school, but earned scholarships to Northern Kentucky University for five years, a four-year scholarship based on his portfolio of art works, and in his fifth year the Dean's Scholarship for academics.[2] He graduated in 1995 with a BFA in graphic design.[3]

Inspirations

As a college student Mack used his drawing, writing and creativity to explore the many aspects of art while retaining his anonymity. While at Northern Kentucky University David Mack took classes ranging from acting and theater, world religions and mythology, world history, children’s literature, Japanese language and even anatomy and physiology, all of which influenced his work.[4]

Career

Mack began publishing Kabuki in 1994 with Caliber Press, and later moved the series to Image Comics. It is now released through Marvel Comics’ imprint Icon Comics. He completed the first book, Kabuki: Circle of Blood, while still in college. Mack has also worked on such Marvel Comics publications as Daredevil, Alias, New Avengers, and White Tiger.
