DIESELFUNK YEAR IN REVIEW.
Greetings Dieselfunkateers! Very quick update because the work NEVER STOPS. Dieselfunk Studios has now passed through our 2nd year with Matty’s Rocket the Comic Series and begun production of The Dieselfunk Show.
We started out with the premiere of Matty’s Rocket 2 at Planet Deep South.
Did Comic workshops in The Mississippi Delta, Schomburg Museum, Jackson MS and Columbus, Ohio.
We had a MASSIVELY SUCCESSFUL showcase of 30 Years of work in comics and Afrofuturism titled ‘BLACK METROPOLIS: 30 Years of Afrofuturism, Comics, Music, Animation, Decapitated Chickens, Heroes, Villains, and, and Negroes.
This work would have us invited to The White House at the First Annual South By South Lawn event in which the Dieselfunk Crew drew President Obama and performed the first Digital Plein Air painting of the Whitehouse…without being sniped I might add:-)
This year closed out with an AWESOME New York Times expose on Afrofuturism featuring the likes of Rhianna, Beyonce, Solange, Ytasha Womack, Rasheeda Phillips, and yours truly, Tim Fielder. This is added on by Bleeding Cool’s preview of Matty’s Rocket 3 and the premiere of The Dieselfunk Store for all of your Matty’s Rocket and Afrofuturistic goods!
I did not think that this year could top last year. BUT IT DID. Very very Grateful and Humbled.
We look forward to even BIGGER THINGS coming for 2017.
