A fun, tongue-in-cheek look at the anguish that is...the creative process! Louise is trying to concentrate on her art, and is experimenting with ways to manifest her imagination on the outside. However, Louise's little brother Art (yup!) and her pet cat seem to be conspiring against her, and it takes an Eloise-ian adventure for Louise to realize that she has room in her life for both forms of Art.
