Soon to be an animated short, it is based on the story of Igor Kenk, named by The New York Times "the world's most prolific bicycle thief."

Frames of video have been frozen, photocopied, scratched and smeared.

KENK teamJoin Queen's alumni Jason Gilmore (producer) and Alex Jansen (filmmaker, designer) and team members Nick Marinkovich (illustrator) and Craig Small (animation director) for a look at how the book was made and what's next. In conversation with Clarke Mackey, author of Random Acts of Culture.
