Young Bartholomew isn’t allowed to go to school, play outside or make art… so he sketches in secret.
When Bartholomew meets the skateboarding artist, Alexander DeVinci, he’s yanked into a mythical realm of living paintings and breathing sculptures: Artania. The two soon learn that the strange world, where everything seems to be possible, is on the verge of destruction.
With Egyptian gods and goddesses by their side, they face daring battles and narrow skateboarding escapes. But can they defeat the evil Sickhert’s army, and bring art back to the world?
