Dieselfunk Year in Review

Dieselfunk Year in Review

DIESELFUNK YEAR IN REVIEW.  

Greetings Dieselfunkateers!  Very quick update because the work NEVER STOPS.  Dieselfunk Studios has now passed through our 2nd year with Matty’s Rocket the Comic Series and begun production of The Dieselfunk Show. 

We started out with the premiere of Matty’s Rocket 2 at Planet Deep South.

Won a GLPYH Award along with Alex Simmons for Blackjack: There Came A Dark Hunter’ 

Did Comic workshops in The Mississippi Delta, Schomburg Museum, Jackson MS and Columbus, Ohio. 

We had a MASSIVELY SUCCESSFUL showcase of 30 Years of work in comics and Afrofuturism titled ‘BLACK METROPOLIS:  30 Years of Afrofuturism, Comics, Music, Animation,  Decapitated Chickens, Heroes, Villains, and, and Negroes.  

Returned to East Coast Comicon, New York Comicon and SOLcon.

Joined the Comixcast crew (headed by the Legend, Joyce Brabner) in covering the Madness that was the Republican National and Democratic National conventions.

Co-created, along with Jim Fielder, an entirely new form of Digital Journalism called Glogging.  This effort resulted in starting production on our program called The Dieselfunk Show.

This work would have us invited to The White House at the First Annual South By South Lawn event in which the Dieselfunk Crew drew President Obama and performed the first Digital Plein Air painting of the Whitehouse…without being sniped I might add:-)

We’d go into the fall of the year with Glogging at the Star Trek Missions 50th Anniversary and participating in the Black Enterprise Comics Roundtable.

Had the honor of illustrating a story written by the Eisner Award and National Book Award winning Andrew Aydin for Comic Book Legal Defense Fund Liberty Annual.

This year closed out with an AWESOME New York Times expose on Afrofuturism featuring the likes of Rhianna, Beyonce, Solange, Ytasha Womack, Rasheeda Phillips, and yours truly, Tim Fielder.   This is added on by Bleeding Cool’s preview of Matty’s Rocket 3 and the premiere of The Dieselfunk Store for all of your Matty’s Rocket and Afrofuturistic goods! 

I did not think that this year could top last year.  BUT IT DID.  Very very Grateful and Humbled.

We look forward to even BIGGER THINGS coming for 2017.

NY Times: Black Metropolis & Mattys Rocket

NY Times: Black Metropolis & Mattys Rocket

NYTIMES: BLACK METROPOLIS & MATTY’S ROCKET

Greetings Dieselfunkateers!   Over the last 7 months an awesome amount of work was done by writer goddess Ruth La Ferla on the subject of Afrofuturism in The NEW YORK TIMES article titled

Afrofuturism: The Next Generation

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/12/fashion/afrofuturism-the-next-generation.html

Covered within the article is my one man show, BLACK METROPOLIS:  30 Years of Afrofuturism, Comics, Music, Animation,  Decapitated Chickens, Heroes, Villains, and, and Negroes.   and my retro-afrofuturism comic, Matty’s Rocket!

As I have been a participant of the form for over 30 years, it is indeed a moving emotion that comes to bear.  BLACK METROPOLIS, and MATTY’S ROCKET represents my particular take on the depiction of black culture within a technological and socially expansive based Past, Present, and FUTURE of WHO and WHAT WE ARE.

Expect MORE NEWS to come over the coming days with a behind the scenes expose on Black Metropolis, Matty’s Rocket, Afrofuturism, Dieselfunk, Dieselfunk Studios, INFINITUM, The Dieselfunk Store, and The Black Speculative Arts Movement.

I want to thank Ruth La Ferla, Boston Fielder, Ed Marshall Photography, Richardine Bartee, Genesis Rivera, Sabaah Folayan, Reynaldo Anderson, Angelica Rogers, Keith Miller, Meredith Theeman, Liza Jesse Peterson, John Jennings, Stacey Robinson and last but most certainly not least, My FAMILY.
