New issue of the ZINE!

Not been posting much, you say! I been busy dude, getting this brand-spankin new Milkyboots ready for y'all. It is available for immediate purchase in my etsy store. In addition:

-if you live in Portland but are terrified of face-to-face contact with me, I just dropped off two copies at Bridge City Comics and I will be taking some to Reading Frenzy soon.

-if you live in Portland and think you'd be okay with meeting me, I will be tabling at the Crafty Wonderland Holiday Sale with my friend & boss, A.M. I will be selling zines and jewelry and other tchotchkes.

-if you also make zines, I would be happy to trade with you! I will also trade for knick-knacks, drinks, cute hairclips, vegetables and the occasional cookie. Holla at a girl: vlpaine at yahoo dot com.

I know this looks weird and some of the faces didn't turn out so good; I have been doing lots of experimenting and learning. Here I learned that drawing freehand with a nib pen is hard and makes my friends look funny.

And yes, sparklers in the house AND an airhorn (Did i mention box wine? Yeah space bag!). I only hope my birthday party is that ridiculous awesome.

Ugh, sorry guys, I haven't been feeling so great so I didn't make it downtown to scan more stuff. Instead, I offer you links to two of my (many) bosses. I do historical research for this talented comix artist; if you scroll down you can see some of the project I'm helping with. And this zinester/writer/photographer is my boss at the IPRC.

I will have a new comic up on Thursday, I swear!

About the wait...

Sorry! I never made it downtown to scan stuff this week, hence the lil break.


Milkyboots #9 should be out very soon! Also, I posted a drawing I did on my 'art' blog: here.
