TUNE IN TODAY
FRIDAY DEC 11 – INTL. MOUNTAIN DAY – 2:00-3:30 PM EST
BLACK METROPOLIS: THE ROAD TO INFINITUM. A CONVERSATION WITH GRAPHIC NOVELIST, TIM FIELDER
The marketing for INFINITUM; An Afrofuturist Tale’, is really starting to ramp up. Thusly, as the release of INFINITUM gets closer to publication by HarperCollins Amistad on January 19th, 2021, we were grateful that CXC allowed my career over the decades to be discussed. If you ever wanted to see how black cartooning intersects with Black Rock Music, Yoruba religious modalities, and Science Fiction, THIS IS IT!
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!
A CONVERSATION WITH TIM FIELDER, CREATOR OF ‘MATTY’S ROCKET’
Taking a quick sec to raise my head up from the Cintiq. I had the pleasure of being interviewed by ROCKETGUT!
ROCKETGUT! is a space, art and culture website by Jason Davis and Porter McDonald. We covered my beginnings in the south and my journey out and back into comics culminating with Dieselfunk Studios.
NPR’S CLOSER LOOK with Rose Scott on BLACK METROPOLIS & Tim Fielder
BUCKET LIST LEVEL ACHIEVED!
WABE / https://www.wabe.org/episode/closer-look-black-metropolis-exhibit-of-comic-book-artist-tim-fielders-work-stockbridge-mayor-anthony-ford/We talked about Afrofuturism and my experience. Also, special tip: on the site you’ll see a preview of INFINITUM. As an artist I have longed to be recognized for my work on a deeper level. For me, this extends beyond the borders of the comic industry into the deeper community at large. To achieve this goal I have my ‘goto’ outlets, one of which was always to be interviewed by National Public Radio. This wonderful experience was conducted by the Great Rose Scott.
This was a fulfillment of the highest magnitude. I’d like to thank NPR, Rose, and crew, and WABE for all of their wonderful support and attention.
