i'm new here

Luke Martin

One day a cartoonist, his wife and their kids decided to move from Chicago to ... anywhere else. After a year and a half, they chose to relocate in Boise. Last August, that cartoonist, Luke Martin, came on Idaho Matters to talk about how he had turned his Idaho experiences into a comic strip called “I’m New Here.” Now he has a new children’s book to show his appreciation for his family’s new home community. It’s called “Boy Sees Beautiful.”
