Creon's mask design was inspired by cool, calm business men with affluence and connections. It is common for me to design masks with photographs of real people before me, as I put together features that speak the most and live most harmoniously together. These decisions are usually the result of multiple sketches, pinterest boards of research, and more than 2 conversations about the nature of the director's vision for the characters in the play. Creon was painted green to match his clothing, as the other primary character masks were. The lines in his face are the most symmetrical and horizontal of any in the production to amplify his evenness, his stability, and in a way, his ambivalence to Oedipus' fate.
