With The Bad Girl's Guide to the Open Road, I developed the feminine, funny,
take-no-flack look of what turned into a highly successful series. The vinyl
cover was inspired by vinyl-covered road atlases; the size was like a guidebook
you would keep in your glove compartment. As the series evolved, pink became
the signature color, the size became about carrying it in your purse, and the
vinyl cover got more fashion-based - sparkly, shimmery fashion, of course,
like ridiculous gogo boots or an especially showy hairdo. Bad Girls became an
attitude, a series, a brand, and a television show, and others have taken over
the look I originally created.
