For too long, Kitsy has had to satisfy her dreams of becoming a real artist by giving her friends makeovers before prom.

Between navigating the subway and the New Yorkers namely, the Art Boy who has a nice trick of getting under her skin Kitsy knows that this summer is going to be about a lot more than figure drawing.
