Jacobs' depiction of atmospheric night scenes seems to be what fans of his work often cite as one of the best aspects of his style

I was interested to see, at an exhibition of his work in Brussels a few years ago, that there were scenes in the artwork of The Yellow 'M' where he pencilled, but intentionally didn't ink, elements of the background, and it was marked to be left as such, so that when (presumably) photoreproduced for printing it would be less distinct, and therefore better evoke a foggy atmosphere.

I love atmospheric night scenes, but too many of them have poor shading that eliminate essential details. Shading works better with contrast, not similar shades of grey or dark blue.
