Glinda and Elphaba from the musical, Wicked. Specifically tried to get across the feeling of the song, For Good. "Like a comet pulled from orbit, as it passes the sun, like a stream that meets a boulder, halfway through the wood. Like a ship blown from its mooring, by a wind off the sea, like a seed dropped by a sky bird, in a distant wood. Who can say if I've been changed for the better, but, because I knew you, I have been changed.... for good."

Throughout time, every culture has made its own heroes, villains and icons, about whom we create artwork and stories as a way of understanding the universe and our place within it. In modern geek culture, I think that many pop culture characters and institutions serve this function, and juxtaposing those images with a historic artistic medium like stained glass is a way for me to show how important a role they play in individual identity in modern society. Each of these stained glass style prints is designed using high-resolution imagery of original stained art-glass. Once the core design is created, I select and place each piece in the same manner that I do when creating original stained glass artwork, then use custom digital brushes to create a gentle patina for a classic look.
