To create a piece of artwork to commemorate fifty years of Monty Python for Gallery 1988’s **2018 Official Monty Python show** (Licensed through Python (Monty) Pictures Ltd under Bravado International group). The print is a celebration of the Python movie ‘Monty Python & The Holy Grail’ and plays on the use of medieval stain glass artwork to interpret key parts of the film’s plot, illustrating each of the Python players in one of their many roles within the film.

How the brief was fulfilled

Drawing inspiration from the medieval stain glass windows of France and England’s Cathedrals, this style was used as the basis for an interpretation that paid homage to the art of the era the film is based in while playing off the fact that the characters depicted in stain glass are usually malformed and humorous to todays standards. First drafted in pencil and sharpie markers, the colour was later applied through using Procreate on the Apple iPad with the Apple Pencil looking at the distressed textures of aged stain glass to bring depth to the print.

Printed by Dublin Print Company, signed numbered edition of 30 giclée prints.
