Greeting Dieselfunkateers!    BlackJack:  GOLIATH IS DEAD.   Upcoming One-shot comicbook collaboration between Creator:  Alexander Simmons and Artist:  Tim Fielder.

 I’m presently hard at work not only on Matty’s Rocket but also on some very cool collaborations with artists I greatly respect.  Enter; Stage Right:  Alexander Simmons, creator of Blackjack.   Alex and I both decided it was time to put our brains together and create a story of Arron Day (aka BlackJack) in a classical European City.  The story is tentatively titled “Goliath Is Dead”.  We anticipate it being previewed at this years New York Comicon in October.  The above images are facial tests I created for Arron that will help me keep him on model.  I’ll post works in progress as I go along.  

Till next time!

The March

Hello Dieselfunketeers. I find myself making a very last minute trip to DC to assist in capturing the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. As I work in the area of Visual Afrofuturism I think perhaps the images I see and capture might inspire me to reflect on where we’ve come and where we are going.

I also recently marked a full month of regular updates for Matty’s Rocket. The buffer is very healthy and it only requires I put in say 5 hours weekly to maintain. This allows me to deliver consistent story for the people yet still maintain a life.

What a Life.

Hello All.  My time in Vermont is coming to a close.  I’ve gone from one side of the state to the other and now understand why they call it “The Green Mountain State”.  I LOVE VERMONT.   I foresee that Burlington is a place that I will be setting up roots in both the near and far term. 

I also love Earth Prime Comics.  The signing was one of the most positive experiences I’ve had so far with my Matty’s Rocket experience.  I met many artists, both young, old, and in-between.  The environment appears to be ripe for anyone who has an idea and ready to give it shape for audience delivery.   

A BIG Thanks to Earth Prime staff Jameson, Cris, and Damon for their seemingly unending patience.  I will be back!  

Next up; a collaboration with the GREAT Alex Simmons, an appearance at the New York Comicon (standby still working on it!), Vermont TechJam, and Return signing at Earth Prime to celebrate the offering of Matty’s Rocket Animated Chapter 1!
