Greetings Dieselfunkateers! I’m beaming to Jackson, MS for the next two days on the MS Book Festival Tour:-) This morning we are at Brown Elementary doing a little Stem, then on to an interview with the GREAT Marshall Ramsey. Later this evening it’s on to the Sketch &Scratch Live Art Show at OFFBEAT!
In the words of the late Cpl Hudson; “It’s That Dry HEAT”:-)
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 acknowledgeBlack 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
The DIESELFUNK GLOG. Greetings Dieselfunkateers! The Dieselfunk Crew is presently in route to Cleveland, Ohio to participate in the historic COMIXCAST RNC. Comixcast, founded by the Legend, Joyce Brabner (Real War Stories, Brought To Light, Our Cancer Year) has undertaken the task of gathering together cartoonists of diverse backgrounds to report, draw, and protest the The Republican National Convention.
So, exactly what is a GLOG? Well if a Blog is digital journalism via words, and a Vlog is digital journalism via Video, then a GLOG is digital journalism via GRAPHICS. The Dieselfunk Way of graphics journalism will encompass Cartooning, Google Glass Video clips, and Digital Portraiture.
We will be Comixcasting LIVE for the next 4 Days. Neither Rain, Sleet, Snow, or Teargas will stop US!
FURTHER, We have the honor of not only working via Comixcast, we are going to be sending out repeated clips to the Illustrious Ones…THE OUTHOUSERS.
