BLACK ENTERPRISE speaks to Tim Fielder on AFROFUTURISM

BLACK ENTERPRISE speaks to Tim Fielder on AFROFUTURISM

Greetings Dieselfunkateers!  BLACK ENTERPRISE ON AFROFUTURISM!  It’s so fascinating to see the world we are in now.  Where visuals that depict people of color within speculative scenarios are now mainstream.  AFROFUTURISM is now MAINSTREAM. 

The Black Panther has now crossed 1 Billion Dollars worldwide and continues on.  Wrinkle In Time is out doing good business as well.  This is all due to the contemporary media state where the demand for content morbidly outstrips the content supply.  As a result, media companies, whether they be traditional or new, are all in the CONTENT WAR.  This means subject matter that never would have even been considered before is now MAINSTREAM.

I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by BLACK ENTERPRISE MAGAZINE on the subject of Afrofuturism.  I was asked to come in and speak on the subject of Afrofuturism.  HUGE pleasure to work with Bigwig Samara Lynn, Media Maven Selena Hill, and special acknowledgement to Sharon Wynne. I had a Blast!  Check it out HERE  or click BELOW

Matty on Publishers Weekly MORE TO COME

Matty on Publishers Weekly MORE TO COME

Greetings Dieselfunkateers!  Just getting back in from our most recent stop on The #mattysrocketbooktour.  Just before leaving, I was honored to be interviewed by the Legend, Calvin Reid, Senior News Editor of PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.  I was recently having a conversation with a colleague about how important Calvin’s work is with regards to the medium of comics and graphic novels.  The medium has in this gentleman, an ambassador and town cryer; something every industry needs in order to survive.  Everyone has that thing that they do well, do with passion, and would do for free.  Calvin LOVES COMICS.  

This is exhibited most profoundly in his work as host of: PW’s MORE TO COME.

We talked about Matty’s Rocket, my process, Black Panther, Dieselfunk Studios, and our upcoming graphic novel, INFINITUM.

Calvin is like ‘The Shadow’ with that frikin ring.  He turned it towards me and I suddenly got dizzy and had to follow his commands.  Unwillingly!:-)  I gave a scoop for MATTY’S ROCKET BOOK TWO!

ITS NOT MY FAULT!!!:-)
