Artist Statement:

16-year-old Codey is having a crisis of faith, spending the last days of summer break in hot and dusty Wyoming reenacting the journey of the Mormon handcart pioneers. The Trek is a graphic novel that explores the relationships between people in a close-knit community that becomes disrupted. The characters in this story may put on costumes and speak in the code of Mormonism, but this molded religious experience is just one of many factors that complicate their transition into adulthood. The estrangement, self-consciousness, and emotional turmoil they experience have larger implications, as we all come of age and shape our identities in a world of contradictions.
