Kilkenny-based illustrator and creative professional Alé Mercado has misplaced his eBook. Or more specifically, he did so aboard an Aer Lingus plane.

He’s not best pleased about it, to be honest, and has expressed his growing frustration in an ongoing series of illustrations charting his epic voyage to regain his reader.


…from the unending series of forms that are to be filled in in a customer-service situation…


…to the ebook’s other fates with which his mind is presented…


…to his acceptance of the scale of the quest that awaits him to regain his precious.


And thoughts of how/where the ebook is coping with this transitional period in life.

No word yet, as to whether or not his book has been found.
