Greetings DIESELFUNKATEERS! Presently on a much needed vacation. More accurately, it’s a “Workcation”. This is a big week upon us as a major project is coming to a close. So I won’t be online much for another week or so. Hopefully this post will hold you till then. In the meantime enjoy this absolutely ridiculous Starwars Fan Fiction story done by yours truly…back in 1981. I was one of those geeks who memorized all of the lines from Starwars. I LOVE Starwars. There, I said it:-)

BLACK METROPOLIS VOL. 1 in Progress! GREETINGS DIESELFUNKATEERS! IMAGINE A CITY THAT’S BLACK! Been a while…say 20 years since I’ve uttered those words. My long in-gestation project, Black Metropolis is being assembled. 30 plus years of artwork ranging from the personal, the commercial, to the sublime is being assembled. We have captured over a thousand photos to select from which will be ultimately spread over two volumes. Several of the pieces will be featured in the upcoming Schomburg Museum Afrofuturism show curated by John Jennings and Reynaldo Anderson. Special thanks to Mayo and Sean for their tireless work. Standby Folks!
