Where's Karl? A Fashion Forward Paroday

Pre-Order your copy today!! 




Featured in People Stylewatch Magazine!!! 
I hinted a bunch of times last year about a super secret job I was working on and literally couldn't share anything about it with you. And considering how excited I was (and still am!) it was really REALLY hard not to share. Well, today I am SO happy to share that job with you!! I had the privilege of working on the illustrations for an Amazing book, Where's Karl? A Fashion Forward Parody that is coming out September 15!! You can pre-order your copy anywhere books are sold!

Where's Karl? is about Karl Lagerfeld the iconic fashion legend and is a parody of the Where's Waldo books I'm sure you loved as a kid (I know I did!).

For the back story, a little over a year ago, I was contacted by the amazing Ajiri Aki, a fashion video producer based in Paris, and Stacey Caldwell, Vice President of Global Wholesale at Thakoon, about being an illustrator for a book they co-wrote being published through Potter Style a division of Random House! I remember thinking "seriously!? Pinch me!!" Just to even be considered for this was amazing. So I worked for a few weeks submitting artwork in order to be considered and eventually I was selected as the illustrator. Over the months that followed I worked closely with Ajiri and Stacey creating the 15 scenes from the book featuring hundreds of fashion and celebrity icons following Karl's travels around the world. And in a little over two weeks this book that we worked so hard on will be a reality! I am still thinking "Seriously!?! Pinch me!!" Maybe even more now then I was then!

The Synopsis: Always on the go, Karl Lagerfeld is everywhere and nowhere all at once. Now, fictional fashion blogger Florence de la Sabine (you can call her Fleur) must find him-- surely an interview with him will set her website apart from the rest. But where will he turn up? Roll up your Alexander McQueen skull sleeves and bust out your vintage Chanel monocle as you follow Fleur all around the world's hottest fashion scenes searching for Monsieur Lagerfeld. Is he at The Met Gala in New York City? Strolling Coqui Coqui Beach in Tulum? On the slopes in St. Moritz? Directing a photo shoot in Dubai? In these stunning, full-color illustrations, you'll spot all of the industry's finest glitterati along the way, turning this book into a full-on game of who's who from Anna Wintour to Beyonce to Woody Allen to Kim Kardashian to Suri Cruise to Prince William, and many, many more.

You can follow along with other readers and Karl fans on Instagram @whereskarl, on Twitter @whereskarlbook, and on facebook at Where's Karl!

I hope you enjoy and order lots of copies!!
