Greetings DieselFunkateers! The last few days have been pretty intense with closing out my BlackJack Collaboration with Alex Simmons. Of particular complexity is that this is the first comic I’ve done in almost 15 years. I must say being around all of these comicbook artists as of late has an old dude thinking about the simplicity of just doing a comicbook.
Matty’s Rocket update in just a bit!
Greetings DieselFunkateers! Back last night from the Schomburg in Harlem. It’s already an Amazing enough experience to see the art of Black Kirby. But to see them explain the process of the how and why is mind bending. If you get a chance to check out the Stacey Robinson and John Jennings duo you’re in for treat.
Did you know that Jack Kirby actually came up with the name and character Black Panther before the Black Panther Party called themselves the Black Panther Party? Who knew?
Apparently, Black Kirby did:-)
Greetings DieselFunkateers! I’m closing out on my BlackJack story but I took a quick turn to produce an image based on a creation by John Jennings of Black Kirby. Black Kirby is a partnership between Jennings and Stacey Robinson. I love the way they revamp the works of Jack Kirby but with a forward thinking mindset.
Keep an eye out!
Greetings DieselFunkateers! DieselFunk is ONE YEARS OLD TODAY! It’s been a great weekend that combined so many different experiences viewing old works made new and new works-in-progress. I want to thank you all for your support.
Just for you guys, this image is of my Flash Gordon/Doc Savage character from Matty’s Rocket….Blitz Von Dietrich…only he’s a Frikin Nazi! PULP!
Greetings DieselFunkateers! Further environment study. The lines are all over the place. I’ve gotta learn more about perspective:-)
Okay, back to the regularly scheduled projects!
