Jenny in Stringtown, like my previous Mauretania Comics, was intended to provide a strong sense of place and environment, Mauretania had this aim in a comic, Jenny in Stringtown had this aim in a putative newspaper strip. The idea was to transfer this type of story, with its special sense of atmosphere, from the broad almost unlimited spaces of a comic, to a newspaper strip with a continuing main character, where the strips are constrained in small single-page episodes. No newspaper ever took up Jenny in Stringtown although there was a flurry of interest from an agent in New Zealand, and then the strip was briefly a mainstay of 90’s US internet startup ebook publisher JamBooks

An exhibition of Chris' original artwork is special because most of his artwork is held by the library of Columbia University in New York.
