This is a project I've been working on all year, and I'm really excited to share it with you! It's called The Bike Maker and it's a short, very short chapter book about a boy named Miles whose father is the famous Bike Maker of Sweet Grass, Louisiana. When his father dies, Miles must overcome his grief, make friends, and become the next bike maker. That's the simple version. There is a lot of symbolism personal to me, since the story is inspired by my dad, who built these weird, unridable bikes before he died.
This piece will go into my final senior show at Memphis College of Art. I plan on developing the story much further after graduation. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek!
