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.

The WORK Continues

Special shoutout and acknowledgement to Damian Cave and Angelica Rogers for taking the conversation on Race/Related even DEEPER.

DIESELFUNK GLOG in NY TIMES

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.

GLOG OUT!

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!
