Droughts and Monsoons



Ever have a few weeks where you just need to decompress a little?

Sometimes despite all our efforts... nothing comes.  Keep me humble when i take for granted getting up at 4am and stuff usually pouring out.

Droughts and Monsoons. Trying for some inner 'moderation', so my thanks for everyone's patience during the creative Drout-outs.

Keep me humble when i take for granted getting up at 4am and stuff (usually) pouring out so freely.

Stuff trickling out now, again, thankfully.

Above's a cover which i'm finishing today.

 Thanks for your patience, you guys are *awesome*, as always!

Cool pick Sam, I like your file tabs too. (happens a lot to me, it gets worse if you kick your own ass for not producing)

And yet even in a drought, the awesome keeps coming. That there be one spiffy looking cover - can't wait to see how it turns out!

You're a gun sam. Sometimes smoking, sometimes locked safely away from the bullets formerly at wallmart..

Glad you're back! Nothing wrong with a draught, usually lets me know that I have some stuff to work through. Don't be so hard on yourself (easier said than done.....I know, I know)
Be well Sam. Thank for being you.

Awesome, man, and that looks great so far.

Dear Sam,

I know this is unrelated to the topic at hand, but I know of no other way to get in contact with you.

I am a graduate student of English at Duquesne University whose lifelong love of literature was first inspired by having his mind blown when watching MTV's adaption of the first parts of the Maxx in 1995.

To this end, I'm actually writing a graduate school paper in my literary theory class on the The MTV adaption of The Maxx (at this time, page limit requirements prevent me from writing one on the whole series).

I wonder if I could interview you, via email correspondence, and ask you some questions about the literary theory applications of The Maxx. I won't ask you if you'll be writing any more Maxx material, as I already know the answer to that :P

I, of course, promise not to disclose your email address, and I will of course send you a copy of my graduate school paper before I submit it for review to my professor (to make sure that I'm not arriving at any unfounded conclusions).

I really hope that this won't be a Frequently Ignored Question, as, as an aspiring literary theorist and English professor, I believe that a cultural production's author is the best source for information about it. I wouldn't want to be completely off-base about the cultural significance, impact, and meaning of The Maxx.

Please email me at clarkej@duq.edu if you can spare some time to answer some of my questions about The Maxx.

Best Regards,
James Clarke
Graduate Student of English at Duquesne University

Mr. Kieth, I've been an admirer of your work for over twenty years now. First saw your work on the covers of "Marvel Comics Presents..." when you drew several covers of both Wolverine and Ghost Rider. Then I saw your work on "The Maxx" and was completely blown away yet again. It looks like yet again you have another masterpiece in the works and that makes me happy to see you're still doing what you love. Never give up on your passion no matter how much the industry may try to keep you down.

Sam Kieth said...

Thanks for the encourage everybody! Just got to keep hanging tough i guess.

James, i'm flatted by the interview request, but i've said my peace about maxx in tons of old interviews online already. Too much in fact. It's another reason try to avoid interviews now. But feel free to use anything i HAVE said in old interviews if it helps your graduate paper though buddy!

Oh, and anonymous? no worries about being 'that guy', : ) ... but same goes with any 'sam kieth checklist'. There's tons of places to check for my old work, and i cover most newer work on the blog, so i wouldn't worry about missing anything.

Everybody else, don't give up on me yet! this CRAZY week of deadlines is almost over! ( pant pant )
