&1 Jolby Zine Preview

Here is one of the first pages we finished for our zine. You may be asking "Why does it say Sickle with a pickle under it?" Well, Sickle Pickle is something Colby and I have been saying for a long time, it's our way of saying "that's cool/awesome/rad/tubular". Keep checking back for more previews and news.

Tone Matrix

So I think I have found something that I would be happy to waste all my time doing. Tone Matrix might be the coolest thing I have ever seen on the internet. Andre Michelle is the genius behind this and should win an award for the funniest game/music maker. If you want to send something make to a friend, right click over the squares with the tones you made and copy and then all they have to do is paste over the squares. Have fun.

Coming Soon: &1

Josh and I are working on the first Jolby zine which will be titled "&1: Jolby all the Time" and has no release date as of yet, but we wanted to show you a sneak peak at the cover. The zine will be filled with all of the wackiness that makes Jolby what it is. Some ideas we have include fighting bananas, a truly Sickle Pickle, and killer boomerangs.
