Activity Books describe the journey of a 12 year old boy named Coy Mills, aka Lil Retro from “The Ville,” NC, that discovers his special gift in drawing sneakers. It all starts when he discovers a mysterious “glow” surrounding his hands one day.
While watching a basketball game on TV, Lil Retro starts paying attention to what the players are wearing on their feet (more than he usually does). Even though he was always into sneakers, he never thought about drawing them before…until now!
Rather than just thinking about sneakers he’d like to buy, he starts thinking of his own cool ideas. And to his surprise, those amazing ideas begin showing up on paper as he starts to sketch!
Super hype by this newfound ability, he wonders who he could talk to about all of this. And that’s when a familiar name comes to mind…
To find out what happens next, be sure to follow Lil Retro’s story in the first edition of our CREATIVE DISCOVERY TOOLS and stay tuned as more unfolds with the glow!
The diversity across Lil Retro’s universe allows for a unique mix of culture and perspectives. As he meets new people, his understanding of the world increases.
