Medieval Stained Glass No.1. This was an unusual commission. I was asked to create six medieval-style stained glass art pieces with the final art being printed in grayscale rather than in full colour. I decided to render my entire commission in grayscale as many illustrators did between 1920-1960. This way, I could better control how the final tonal values would print vs rendering the pieces in full colour and then converting them into grayscale later. Between 1920 and 1960 most magazines published art in black and white and grayscale due to the high cost of colour printing. There were many artists in this period who specialized in greyscale art rendering. My artwork was well received, even if gruesome in the subject, although I was just following the art director's direction.
