In 2001 Isabelle edited a book called ‘’Flirt: Sexy Wild and Sensual Pin ups’’ It was an illustration book that was putting together the work of artists from all around the world. The book got a pretty good success so Isabelle thought she found her career. She started working on a second book, this time about Scream Queens!
