Up the Wall

When his family moved to Sugar Land, Texas, in December 2014, 15-year-old Kyle Wicks found himself in a bedroom with bare walls. He decided to decorate the space by covering it with pages from SPORTS ILLUSTRATED. The sophomore at Clements High took 10 months to complete his collage, which uses more than 1,000 photos from 16 years of magazines that he and his dad, Rocco, had collected. "I began covering the walls with my favorite Oklahoma photos from the magazine, and it took off from there," says Kyle, whose mom, Lori, posted his work on Fancred. Only two subjects were off-limits: the Swimsuit Issue and "an old issue that mentioned my dad from when he played football at Army."
