And so Milkyboots #7 enters the world with a whisper, not a bang. You can buy it here, or if you hate etsy or whatever, you can email me. My email's to the left under my extremely accurate profile picture. Oh yeah, and it DOES have a bunch of stuff that hasn't been on teh blog.
Thanks again to TEB for showing me how to use the scanner and InDesign, and for yelling at me about being sloppy in a very nice way.

Yesterday was one of those days when everyone was conspiring against me. I realized most of the comics I do about John involve me yelling at him. Why? It's so much fun! I'm sure if you met John you would enjoy yelling at him as well.
Update: Holy crap, I am on the front page of Microcosm's site! AHHHHHHH Awesome!

Before I get an "OMG WTF" from Mo, I will just say: Yes, Mo, THAT Tobin.
Only twelve more batches of cookies to bake this week, or in other words, three more days of roommate torture!
PS. The fliers I put up are for cheap alterations. If you live in PDX and need your pants fixed, hit me up!

Argh, no time to draw a new one for you today, I gotta go to the post office, then I have an interview at the Tin Shed (! I hope I get it!) and then I have to go help Lux with some fashion show...How did I get busy? I have no idea. I didn't draw one last night because I was watching Hellboy 2 and then my roommates demanded cookies and did I mention I stapled all thirty-five copies of Milkyboots #6 I made for Microcosm WRONG? So I had to go to the IPRC and sit there for like an hour and half unstapling and then restapling them and listening to the volunteers talk about people I've read about in other people's comics.
Huff! Anyway, this is the first three panels of the jam comic I did with a bunch of other folks at the IPRC's Comics and Coffee thing. I like Patrick's panel (middle one) the best. He said it was hard to draw my style, but his take on my style is what I wish my style looked like.
PS. Yes, I know it's cut off but the print is too small to read otherwise.

A few things:
-I was stalkin' y'all using my statcounter and went to 'recent keyword searches'. Someone found my site after searching for 'j woolard orgasm'. Uhhh...good luck with that one, whoever you are. Ha! And what was Woolard's reaction? "Yes! Go me and my public lack of orgasms!" Why do I love her? Because she wanted me to post about it.
-I got picked up for distribution by Microcosm! I've been trying for like a year. They're the awesomest zine distro/publisher and they carry a bunch of my favorite comicy-zine people, plus a bunch of great DIY stuff.
-Mark your calendars! I will be tabling at Stumptown Comics Fest on April 18th and 19th. It's in PDX at the Lloyd Center Double Tree, real cheap to get in and should be great fun. I'm pretty nervous about it, honestly. And I have an extra exhibitor badge still if anyone wants to help out...
-Oh yeah, and here's an article about the short film I was in.

Hey. Hey, don't stare, that's my WIFE, dude. Actually, it's Liv and I really did ask her to marry me once, in the middle of the "dance floor" at Seidenfadens. I was drunk, but I meant it.
I started another blog, because I really don't have enough made-up stuff to do. It's a food blog! It won't be updated as regularly as this one. It can be found here: food stamp foodie. I wanted to try out wordpress since Carrot switched and seems to like it better.

The movie we were watching, Le Corbeau, was actually really good. The wine just kinda caught up to us.
Since I'm still unemployed, I might as well become a food blogger. Here are the cookies I made today, using this recipe.
Mine came out a little drier than the recipe, I think because I didn't use brown sugar. And I used Earth Balance instead of butter. I think in my next batch I'll use half the Earth Balance and replace the other half with applesauce.

Here are the rest of my Spanish poems:
Mano ellas pintura favor
Macho ian quiet pod
Eres e azul infierno
Sol jade estamos
Grande sexual que
Detras desliz estas
Mejor marea pero
Ha eramos rio facil
Mi de corr
O con una
Esta las mov
Piedra dos alla
Pasion an estar
Eso goz er cada el vez!
Si todavia despiert no
Oscur lejos por ias ido
Ador comida emos
I probably don't need to mention that I don't speak ANY Spanish.
John and I made beer on Friday. It will be the hoppiest, most alcoholic IPA ever made. The recipe we used was called "Indiana Pale Ale" so I kept calling it "CaliKentuckiana Pale Ale."
