Portræt: Karl

Karl blogger på sin egen blog, TotallyInkarlcerating, men det var på lookbook, jeg første gang stødte på hans androgyne og til tider meget feminine, dog modige, stil! Jeg synes det var spændende, så derfor spurgte jeg ham, om han var frisk på et portræt - og han sagde glædeligt, ja! Så here goes! Karl take over!
1. Can you briefly introduce yourself? How old are you, where are you from, what do you do for a living and do you have anything that you are extremely interested in?
