The Zen of Steve Jobs [video]

Creative agency JESS3 has collaborated with FORBES to produce an 80-page graphic novel that reimagines Steve Jobs’ life when he was fired from Apple, and his relationship with Zen Buddhist Priest Kobun Chino Otogawa.

‘The Zen of Steve Jobs’ is focuses on the part of Steve Jobs’ life when he was exiled from the company he built in the mid-80s, when he took up intensive study with the Kobun, and the impact it had on Jobs’ career up to the year 2011.

The fully-illustrated depiction of Jobs was inspired by “a documentary in 2009 that touched on Jobs’ study of Buddhism and how its teachings affected the aesthetic of Apple products”, and written by Caleb Melby.

The Zen of Steve Jobs is available for $11 on amazon
