Vertically Challenged


...it's the term I actually use for myself since I'm only 5'3" and has a bit to do with this illustration.

Last week, I was contacted by petite model Isobella Jade who has published the book, Almost 5'4", which is the story of how she began a career as a model through the internet. Apparently Isobella didn't own a computer and would walk up the signature plexi-glass stairs and stand for hours in the NYC's Apple store in SoHo to type out her story. At about 350 pages, that's quite a bit of standing! The deadline was pretty short but here's hoping the illustration is published with the article on her story.
