From the moment the Painter draws him, the doodle-a childish stickman named Sketch-has but one dream: to become a great artist like his creator.

Mistakes are made, however, and mistakes compound, until Sketch finds himself pushing the very boundaries of creation, destruction and perhaps even forgiveness.
