Michael plays with viewpoints and the idea of space. Cutaways are utilised as well overhead views of his subjects. A stage can be set with a two dimensional backdrop setting off the foreground activity.
Michael has worked on museum projects for Sea City Museum and Bristol Aerospace, illustrated catalogues for the Italian furniture company Arper as well as De Padova and Vitra and worked on marketing campaigns for a real estate developer in New York. Michael illustrated the book ‘This is Frank Lloyd Wright’ for Laurence King and has created wine labels, colouring posters for The School of Life, advertising campaigns for Kwik-Fit and information leaflets for Bayer Pharmaceuticals as well as book covers for Faber & Faber, Penguin and Random House.
