Welcome to Agonizing Trifles the place on the web for my experiments in graphic narrative. My name is Erik Jagger and I am an illustrator and artist living in the San Francisco bay area. Below are brief descriptions of the comic threads that I am currently developing on this site.

Amalgamated Vapor - is a fantastical sci fi story with overtones of steampunk…or maybe retro futurism. Well, let’s call it anachro-tech. It is at least partially inspired by the work of French artist Möbius and probably the films of Terry Gilliam.
