The annual outside art festival is nearly a bust for Sapphire Williams and her best friend, Cierra. Over-heated and ready to leave, the two girls encounter a very mysterious woman by the name of Madam Dee. With one dark brown eye and one crystalline blue eye, Madam Dee's stern appearance is enough to make anyone uneasy. However, Sapphire cannot take her eyes off of the Madam Dee's art work that is bizarrely life-like.
Convinced that Madam Dee's artistic ability is the result of an old, strange looking art pen with glowing blue inlays, Sapphire "borrows" the odd pen when Madam Dee is not looking. Sapphire quickly realizes that her assumption was correct as each one of her creepy horror sketches begins to take on the same eerie, realistic look as Madam Dee's artwork.
It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words...yet Sapphire and Cierra soon learn that some pictures can become much, much more!
