Greetings DieselFunkateers!  I’ve done so much Matty’s Rocket and BlackJack work I needed a brief break.  This image is a concept design made just for fun.  

Have a great Memorial Day!

Greetings DieselFunkateers!  I’m back from ECBACC, which took place in the City of Brotherly Love known as Philadelphia.  I had the pleasure of screening Matty’s Rocket for a full day as well as presenting an award during the annual Glyph Awards.  It was awesome running into good friends and new.   I also had the privilege of participating in an amazing Panel Discussion at ECBACC.  Best of all it was amazing interfacing with Fans.

Next up is spending the remainder of this month and much of next closing out many chapters of Matty’s Rocket for upload on our Youtube page and main page.  Additionally, we will be premiering our merchandising site very soon for your patronage.  

Which seems like a wonderful segue into a reminder of our Patreon Page. Please donate as little as $1 if you can.  It make’s a difference.    

Greetings DieselFunkateers! Just giving two headsups for two cool events. First up:
BRIC Arts: Expanded Practice: A Survey of Work by BRIC’s Teaching Artists, May 14th from 5-7pm.

One of the ways Matty’s Rocket is made possible is through my work as a Teaching Artist. This process provides both resources and immensely important feedback; Hey teachers learn from the students too:-) I had the pleasure of hanging out with some of my cool colleagues like Pamella Allen and Lindsay Catherine Harris. On top of that there were two additional openings at the Gallery space.

Big shoutout to Jenny Gerow and Eric. Also this wouldn’t have happened without the great work of Jackie Chang, and Jill Beale.

Big things are ON at BRIC!

Second: East Coast Black Age of Comics. ECBACC. In Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love

On Friday 16th of May I will be one of the presenters at the Glyph Awards, which recognizes and awards the best ComicBook creators of color. It’s an honor to be asked to participate.

Next day is the BIG ONE. THE EAST COAST BLACK AGE OF COMICS ECBACC. Matty’s Rocket will be screening all day accompanied by a panel discussion. Also of course all of the Matty goodies will be available for purchase! Shirts and Posters Baby!

It’s always amazing to see great artists come together.

Greetings DieselFunkateers!  I’ll be attending the Kids Comicon today at Bronx Community College.  Hope to see you there.  It’s Gonna Be BIGFUN!  https://www.facebook.com/KidsComicCon
