The Zen of Steve Jobs – A graphic novel

 BY THE APPLE GIRL

Creative agency Jess3 has collaborated with Forbes to produce a 80 page graphic novel of Steve Jobs when he was fired from Apple. The book goes in detail about the relationship of Jobs with the Zen Buddhist priest Kobun Chino Otagawa, who was a maverick himself. It focuses on Jobs’ intensive study with Kobun and the impact it had on Steve’s career and design philosophy. The book explores how Jobs’ might have honed his design aesthetic via Eastern religion to identify only what he needs and leave the rest behind. It sounds to me as an interesting read!
