DUNCE is a comic about a guy not totally unlike myself, trying to make it far up north, in Tromsø (Norway).

I found Jens on Twitter a while back via his diary comics and immediately fell in love with his art style — in which I see a little Ralph Steadman and a little Quentin Blake. His simplistic character designs are deceptive and brimming over with life and vitality in a way that is surprising and deeply human.
— Robin William Scott, The Mini Comic Courier

My comic Dunce grew out an earlier project called JensK, where I did daily pages/strips for online publication. They were collected in five self-published magazines, JensK #1-5 (now all sold out unfortunately). The 100+ pages of JensK-strips gave me an assignment to draw for four months of daily strips in the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet. This new "iteration" of the strip got the name Dunce.

The first Dunce collection, Dunce Number one, is available from mid March 2017, you can order it from my webshop, www.jensk.no.
