Using limited means that call to mind graffiti art, Robin Rhode draws settings and objects in charcoal or chalk with which figures (often himself) interact in short films.

Little more than several lines on a wall or the ground, the settings that frame his sketches come to life using a simple principle: he creates his animations using a series of fixed images that appear one after another in cross-fade; bodies move and seem to enter the drawing as it evolves. New kids on the bike (2002), in reference to a popular American boy band, depicts two children doing tricks on imaginary bikes.
