The inspiration for this print is a line in John Prine's song, Sweet Revenge. The whole song is great but I especially like the second verse that goes, "I caught an aisle seat on a plane, and drove an English teacher half insane, making up jokes about bicycle spokes and red balloons".
The lyrics sparked the idea, but it's also a nod to the old days when kids would put playing cards (or whatever they could find) in their spokes to make a "motor sound".
