Kenk: A Graphic Portrait is an award-winning 300-page journalistic comic book about Igor Kenk, "the world's most prolific bicycle thief" (The New York Times and The Guardian). In the summer of 2008, Kenk was arrested and nearly 3,000 hot bicycles were seized in what became one of the biggest news stories of the year. Built from an incredible mix of found footage, filmed interviews and archival material, treated with a dazzling visual style, Kenk is a thought-provoking and surprisingly funny journalistic profile (in the tradition of New Yorker masters Joseph Mitchell and A.J. Liebling) of an outsize neighborhood figure and a city in flux. Kenk is a one-of-a-kind profile -- a mash-up of mediums that culminates in a marriage of thorough investigative journalism and the comic book form in an entirely new way. A fully animated film treatment is currently in production with award-winning commercial director Craig Small, who helped develop the Academy Award nominated animated film Madame Tutli-Putli.
