If Edward Gorey was a Goth Fashionista

He would be Gertrude. Or, at least that is my take.  Gertrude’s dark personality is so fun to work with One of my favourite parts of creating these sketches is researching my book shelves for works that would inspire a character like Gertrude, and then finding a way to drop these into the frames where they are best suited.

 Literary buffs and  should pay attention to the details – that bookshelf is loaded!
