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 strip is still running on a daily basis, and I'm hoping for more papers/publications, both here and abroad.

The first Dunce collection, Dunce Number one, is available in my webshop, see www.jensk.no. The second Dunce-zine is allready funded through a successful Kickstarter-campaign and will be available in August/September 2017.
