John Muir Trail 2019

John Muir Book

In 2019, my wife, my sister, her husband, and I took a hiking trip to the John Muir Trail in California. When I returned, I had grand plans to turn this story into a graphic novel. I found the project too complicated and ambitious, and, after working on several sample pages, set it aside for the time being. For those that are interested, I have begun chronicling the story in my daily comic strip (see the ‘Mose Goes Walkies’ link above). I’ve been finding it easier to tell the tale in digestible 4 panels-at-a-time chunks. Here’s a few of the early strips in the series. (the rest is uploaded daily on my Instagram site)

John Muir Trail Postcard

Been a while since I’ve worked on the John Muir Trail project. Rather than work chronologically, I’ve decided to jump around on the story, so that I can use a few pages of this as a self promotional postcard this month. For those that are new here, I’ve been working on a graphic novel based on our summer trip last year, titled “How Not to Hike the John Muir Trail”. The above sequence takes place just prior to the halfway point of our adventure.
