Best friends Matt and Craz couldn't be more different. Matt loves order, while Craz is always scattered and loves to live on the edge. Matt is learning to live with his parents' divorce and deal a distant older brother, while Craz lives in a house full of siblings and two loving, yet harried, parents. One thing the boys do have in common is their love for cartooning. But thanks to the school paper gatekeeper, Skip Turkle, they seem destined to never see their cartoons make the school paper. All that changes one night when the boys click on a link to buy a pen that promises to help them DRAW BETTER NOW! And when the pen arrives, Matt and Craz quickly realise that this is no ordinary pen - whatever they draw ends up coming to life! The two friends start small with their drawings: bags of cash, cool gadgets. But then they take riskier moves and get a little bolder in their magical drawings… and when things don't go to plan, the boys discover that little hiccups that happen off the page aren't that easily erased.
