Comixcast RNC Done!

Comixcast RNC Done!

COMIXCAST RNC DONE!   Greetings Dieselfunkateers!  The Dieselfunk Crew has shut down operations in Cleveland as we prepare to head back to the studio.  Our final day was spent interviewing Entrepreneur, Artist, and Activist Ra Washington, owner of GUIDE TO KULCHUR.

numerous members of the Comixcast Crew,

and finally, the Mastermind of COMIXCAST

JOYCE BRABNER.

I’m so very, very PROUD of Joyce as her vision towards creating an inclusive, socially engaged Incubator for cartoonists of all backgrounds was an ABSOLUTE SUCCESS.

As it stands, COMIXCAST provided the opportunity to:  1.  Provide a compelling Visual in the fight against Oppression.  2.  Give many old head cartoonists an opportunity to re-engage in the larger discussion with their Art.  3.  Give an Awesome start to young cartoonists.  4.  Creative dynamic content that bridges and transcends the analog media and blasts into the virtual media. 5.  Create the space to give life to a new form of cartooning…GLOGGING.  and finally,   6.  Allow me and my Twin Brother to create an Excitingly NEW creative venture…The Dieselfunk Glog.

Next UP… DNC Philly!

The Dieselfunk Glog

The Dieselfunk Glog

The DIESELFUNK GLOG.  Greetings Dieselfunkateers!  The Dieselfunk Crew is presently in route to Cleveland, Ohio to participate in the historic COMIXCAST RNC.  Comixcast, founded by the Legend, Joyce Brabner (Real War Stories, Brought To Light, Our Cancer Year) has undertaken the task of gathering together cartoonists of diverse backgrounds to report, draw, and protest the The Republican National Convention.  

So, exactly what is a GLOG?  Well if a Blog is digital journalism via words, and a Vlog is digital journalism via Video, then a GLOG is digital journalism via GRAPHICS.  The Dieselfunk Way of graphics journalism will encompass Cartooning, Google Glass Video clips, and Digital Portraiture.

We will be Comixcasting LIVE for the next 4 Days.  Neither Rain, Sleet, Snow, or Teargas will stop US!

FURTHER, We have the honor of not only working via Comixcast, we are going to be sending out repeated clips to the Illustrious Ones…THE OUTHOUSERS.

DIG IT BABY!

Blackjack: RIGHTS. Behind the Scenes

Blackjack: RIGHTS: Behind the Scenes! Greetings Dieselfunkateers!  Alexander Simmons is back at it again.  In collaboration with partner Chris Ryan these cats decided to do a story about AMERICA, what it means to be AMERICAN, and the Blackjack drama that all that entails.  I was asked to contribute visuals for this project and went through different iterations.

Design Brief:  The brief was very basic in providing descriptive keywords.

image

Rough:  Sometimes the visuals come immediately.  So the basic layout was done very quickly.

image

Pose Variants:  Of course once I got far enough in the design I had to choose the best pose for Arron Day aka ‘Blackjack.  Did we want the 1. I double dare you to make a move. 2.  i’m gonna shoot first variant.  3.  Guns blazing variant,   We choose variant 1.

Reference Photos:  Hey, the Internets Rocks:-)

Final:  A bit of Photoshop and Manga Studio and ‘Voila.   I’m a huge proponent of integrating typography with images so its was just a matter of a few tweaks.

Very PROUD, once again, to be affiliated with the works of Simmons and Ryan and BLACKJACK.
