    "It’s rare I’ll explain my work in this much depth.  I much prefer to allow people to develop their own understanding, create a meaning which resonates more personally with them.  On this occasion, however, Taken By The Tide have specifically asked me to contribute a few words on this piece, produced for their second EP titled Hands Of Spite.  As with a lot of my work there is a lot going on here, too much for just a few paragraphs and as I’m going to look at this in depth, I thought it might be of interest to really do so…"

    I’ve written a fairly long article on this subject which can be viewed here



  • The final sleeve for the Taken By The Tide “Hands Of Spite” EP.  I’ll be posting an explanation of the ideas behind it on my blog very soon.  Something I don’t normally do but the boys did ask nicely… #takenbythetide #architecture #album #artwork #illustration #treeoflife #kaballah #architectureofcontrol

  • Big thanks to the Taken By The Tide boys for mentioning me in their interview with Terrorizer today.  Congrats for being nominated Band Of The Day as well!



  • It’s rare I repost anything by other people on here as I use this pretty much just as a news feed for michael-cowell.com, but christ, Chelsea Wolfe is killing it at the moment and this work she’s doing with Mark Pellington is amazing.

    I’d kill to do some work for her….

  • Inking finished.  I’ll be flipping the right wing because I’ll go crazy drawing it all again symmetrically. Typically, you won’t even see most of this in the final image…  #wip #takenbythetide #illustration #albumart #albumsleeve

  • Been helping my good friend and screen writer Holly Phillips redecorate and hang some pictures for the last few days.  Snuck a few if my own up as well. Don’t think she’s noticed yet…  Also her husband Huw snuck into the left corner like some creepy Victorian ghost child.  #decorating #interior #screenprint #framed #artwork #huwisabastard
