Greetings DieselFunkateers! Just giving two headsups for two cool events. First up:
BRIC Arts: Expanded Practice: A Survey of Work by BRIC’s Teaching Artists, May 14th from 5-7pm.
One of the ways Matty’s Rocket is made possible is through my work as a Teaching Artist. This process provides both resources and immensely important feedback; Hey teachers learn from the students too:-) I had the pleasure of hanging out with some of my cool colleagues like Pamella Allen and Lindsay Catherine Harris. On top of that there were two additional openings at the Gallery space.
Big shoutout to Jenny Gerow and Eric. Also this wouldn’t have happened without the great work of Jackie Chang, and Jill Beale.
Big things are ON at BRIC!
Second: East Coast Black Age of Comics. ECBACC. In Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love
On Friday 16th of May I will be one of the presenters at the Glyph Awards, which recognizes and awards the best ComicBook creators of color. It’s an honor to be asked to participate.
Next day is the BIG ONE. THE EAST COAST BLACK AGE OF COMICS ECBACC. Matty’s Rocket will be screening all day accompanied by a panel discussion. Also of course all of the Matty goodies will be available for purchase! Shirts and Posters Baby!
It’s always amazing to see great artists come together.
