Hi. So, I’m Karen Rondeau and I am doing the lobby display for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. This is inspired by the work of Edward Gorey. Walter Mayes, the director, his idea was to use things – use a style that is inspired by his pen-and-ink, sketchy, line stuff. So I’m also trying to compliment Heather Kenyon‘s set design with a family crest kind of thing that’s going to be A Gentleman’s … Guide… to Love… and Murder. Hopefully, it turns out great, and we’ll have cool pictures.
