Lo and Behold. Women In Comics Convention TODAY! at the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. I had to come up for air for a second from working hard on INFINITUM. I was asked by Supah Sistah Supreme, Regine Sawyer, Founder of Women IN Comics, to moderate an AWESOME panel titled:

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
Pacifica Radio is known for doing cutting edge content showcasing the progressive ideals inherent in intellectual and progressive thought. Tomorrow morning, I, Tim Fielder, will be interviewed on WBAI about all things Matty’s Rocket.TUNE IN!!!!
Greetings Dieselfunkateers!The Schomburg Black Comic Book Day happens this coming weekend. Part of life is a continual assessment of one’s goals.We rate, compare, retool, and strategize steps based upon our past , present and future. Our present thought, based upon past experience: No company can survive without content in the present and future. Thusly, right out the gate, Dieselfunk Studios is committed to DELIVERING PRODUCT, no matter how large or small.
I’ve always loved the fully painted Calendars of the early to mid 20th Century. Whether the subjects ranged from naval, aeronautics, or Santa drinking a coke, I respect the craft and detail that each artist put into the work. Further, such a product extends the world-building of the primary Matty’s Rocket Story.
Consider the month of January: Matty pilots her Strato-capsule into Earth Orbit.
Or perhaps, June: Duke, the famed Jazz composer, comes to the Harlem Sector’s Apollo Pavilion. What sort of ride would Duke fly in look like? (Closeup below) Check out the Matty’s Rocket 2018 Calendar to see.
