GREETINGS DIESELFUNKATEERS! WEBSITE RELAUNCH! As those that know can attest, I have many initiatives that I undertake. We are believers that if mugs see something, it’s REAL to them. We apply this philosophy towards presenting our work in the best possible light. Perfection is not the goal. Iterative Improvement is the goal. After months of planning we have relaunched the Dieselfunk Studios website.
Some elements look the same while other sections are brand new. Plus we’ve added some elements under the hood. Quick features are a nice social media feed to always ensure that there is new content on the site. Additionally, there are new project pages for Matty’s Rocket, and our up and coming release, INFINITUM. More updates and tweaks will be coming as the days and weeks go on.
We have had the pleasure of working with Webmaster David M. Littlefield, aka DMLWORX to construct a site that very much employs the ‘Dieselfunkcosphere’ idea that all things Dieselfunk must be integrated and accessible. He has experience in many areas of design, web creation and virtual experience. Just a few samples of work he’s done…
If you need webdesign, this cat is a viable option. As a personal endorsement, Dmlworx built my first website back in 2001. Plus he’s a hell of an INSTAGRAM PHOTOGRAPHER! So there you go!

Greetings Dieselfunkateers! The Dispatch is BACK! We are presently on the perpetual Matty’s Rocket Book Tour in California. It never really ends folks. Of course the Dieselfunk Dispatch continues. This time giving our breakdown on what makes up the Comic industry. I mean, you got your run of the mill floppies from the big majors and indie varieties, your thick ol graphic novels, and your prestigious format thingies. It’s enough to make a mug question just what is the Comic Book Industry? For the artists it means one thing, but for the publisher it means something altogether. Add in the digital disruption with distribution it makes for quite a tale. The Dieselfunk Dispatch goes in relatively deep, but simple enough for the regular reader to get an idea of how it goes down.

Greetings Dieselfunkateers! BLACK METROPOLIS RETURNS! It’s looks like its gonna be one of those days. Back in 2016 I had the privilege of presenting a career retrospective of my work at Gallatin Galleries curated by Keith Miller. This show has formed one of the pillars of my present efforts, which is to SHOW THE WORLD MY WORK!
With that, I am proud to announce at the prestigious Hammonds House Museum…
