Jack: Adventures in Texas' Big Bend - coming back to STAPLE!

It's not so easy to make it across the state every year, and now I look up and it's been three years since I made it from Alpine, TX to Austin for STAPLE!

I'll be there this weekend with three comics (including the debut of a brand-new one) in my series on the animals of the Chihuahuan Desert. It all starts with real science, kids! And then the science goes into the toilet and I tell a ridiculous story.

I'll also have American Apparel T-Shirts, free bookmarks, a portfolio of original pages to peruse, and I'll be doing sketches at my table.

I hope you'll stop by, grab a bookmark and say hi. For a preview of my comics, have a look at jackcomics.com

Travel With Me - My New Book

My new book: Travel With Me; St. Malo and the Mont St. Michel,  (on Amazon).
I just added pictures of inside pages, visible right below the cover image.

This is the result of my participation in the Art House Co-op Sketchbook Project.
I scanned all pages before sending in the sketchbook, and compiled the images into a little book, along with personal notes.
Check it out:
