How to Look Expensive

For the past year I have been working on a number of projects that I am not allowed to spill the beans on until they are complete or public. I finally get to share a big one with you.

I am so very proud to announce that I illustrated a book!

 How To Look Expensive, by Andrea Pomerantz Lustig, hits stores this week. I had such a lovely time working on this project. Most of my hours included getting to know Andrea (who has now become a dear friend) and bringing her to life on paper. I also got to illustrate boxes upon BOXES of beauty product so my desk has been covered in bottles, brushes and compacts for a year.

I hope you'll pick it up next time you are shopping! I have obviously read it and I think you'll love all tricks she learned in her time as a beauty editor. 

(Oh and if you come across it, please PLEASE tweet or FB me a photo! @dallasshaw01)

Congratulations! Can't wait to find the book in-person; I feel like looking expensive is what everyone's looking for nowadays.

P.S. ...the description of your desk sounds like mine. :)
