History[edit]

In April 2005, the co-founder of cosmetics company Hard Candy, Pooneh Mohajer, and her husband Ivan Arnold, saw Simone Legno's personal portfolio website, which had some popularity, being listed as one of The Independent's top ten "websites of the week".[1] They subsequently arranged to meet him, and Simone joined them in Los Angeles. Simone has become a recent fixture at the San Diego Comic Con and makes appearances at various locations worldwide for signings and promotions. Simone has also made a guest appearance on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.[citation needed]
