Jacob spends most of his time outside of his work as a creative director, working hard and passionately on creator-owned visual storytelling projects. Ranging from his reinterpretation of classic Grimm brothers fairy tales in his book Iron John to a delightful comic chronicling the plight of cute fuzzy (and sometimes slimy) creatures from around the cosmos in Everybody Does Their Chores in Polyuna.
