DIESELFUNKSHOW #SXSL at the WHITEHOUSE
Greetings Dieselfunkateers! Identical Twins Jim and Tim Fielder bring their new technique of Digital Journalism, called GLOGGING, to South By South Lawn TODAY. President Obama and the First Lady attended South By Southwest earlier this year and decided, BOOM, lets do it on the lawn of the Whitehouse! Glogging, which is a hybrid of filmed interview and editorial cartoon illustration, has been featured in the New York Times and on CNET. Tune in to the LIVE BROADCAST on https://www.facebook.com/dieselfunkshow/
GLOGGING: TWIN STYLE!
DIESELFUNKGLOG in The NEW YORK TIMES AGAIN!
Hey People, the Dieselfunk Crew is now in the New York Times Race/Related section once more. As Jim and I are still sorting out the checks and balances in this new way of doing things, we learn along the way.
Special shoutout and acknowledgement to Damian Cave and Angelica Rogers for taking the conversation on Race/Related even DEEPER.
Greetings Dieselfunkateers! The Dieselfunk GLOG Crew has been published in the The NEW YORK TIMES. Look and subscribe to the Race/Related Newsletter Section and you will find the writeup. It goes without saying how HUGE this is for my bro, Jim and me (as well as our Comixcast mates). From a concept formulated on a Greyhound Bus to CNET and now to the Times. The last two weeks have been absolutely INSANE. On a personal note, I will state for the record this is a MASSIVE ACCOMPLISHMENT for me individually as a cartoonist. If you ever wants to see an old blackman cry,checkthisquote:
Final mention and thanks to the ‘Programmeditor’, Angelica Rogers, of The New York Times for being motivational and patient with a brother.
It’s been an absolutely wild ride the last two weeks. Yesterday brought to an end the road journey around the chaos that is the intra-party pageantry of the American political system. The Democratic National Convention was every bit as insane as a Bond movie. Who would have thought that my joke about there being Russians would actually come true:-)
The truly great experience was working with my twin brother Jim Fielder, on our new venture ’The Dieselfunk GLOG and SHOW. Expect more on that as we go along. Thanks to Joyce Brabner, founder of Comixcast, my Comixcast mates, and of course The Illustrious One’s, THE OUTHOUSERS, for letting me do my thang. Also, I want to acknowledge Black Enterprise Magazine’s , Derek Dingle, Maryann Reid, Hailey Wallace, and Sharon Wynne.
Finally, none of this would have been known about without the continued tweeting, retweeting of the numerous bloggers out there. All of theblerdgurls, afronerds, blacktribbles, blackgril nerds, yams and whathave you represent the end of the media world as we know it.
Very quick note on GLOGGING. IT’S FUN
We’ll be Glogging with Joe Thomas of Atomic Comics, Ariell Johnson of Amalgam Comics, and the MAN, Danny Simmons of Rush Galleries. Philly does indeedydo ROCK
