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 has been running in Norwegian newspapers since January 2017. 

The first three Dunce-collections are available in my webshop, see www.jensk.no. The fourth Dunce-zine will have a Kickstarter-campaign running in May 2018.

"Like Watterson or Thompson, Styve’s simplified drawings are enhanced by his skillful use of traditional media."
