Here's an insightful text about the production and backstory of the Mogwai print, taken from German LOW Magazine, issue 1 (August 2006):

The initial idea and preliminary sketches for this image were
drastically different from the finished piece. This is not uncommon,
as my process involves a lot of trial and error during the sketching
phase. I'll fine-tune the composition at a very small scale, sometimes
1/8 of the final printed size, until I'm happy with the overall
layout. I then blow up the rough mock-up about 200% on a photocopier
and go back in with my reference materials, adding detail and texture
until the sketch is fleshed-out sufficiently. I like to work from a
very tight sketch so I can focus on the inking without worrying about
the structural stability of the piece.
Once I had settled on the subject matter the various elements
quickly fell into place and I soon had the workings of a solid
vignette. The color schemes on all of my prints are hashed-out while
I'm inking the separate plates. I had been waiting for an opportunity
to depict multilayered snow using varying shades of silver, white and
grey and this project seemed like a perfect candidate. I don't think I
would have been able to accurately build this scene without having
grown-up in the Rural Midwest. It also helped that Wezz was familiar
with the conditions of a winter storm when it came time to mix the
inks and build the layers of falling snow.

I usually spend just over a week on each poster from the initial
sketches to the final production notes. Most of my projects "overlap"
in that I'll be mentally working out the basic themes and ideas for
the next job while I'm inking the current one. This was one of the
very few gigposters I've worked on where I wasn't familiar with the
band. The others being Arcade Fire and The Magnetic Fields (still
haven't heard either of 'em). It had been a few months since the first
sunno)))/boris tour poster and I was itching for something when the
Mogwai date came up. At first I was lukewarm about taking it on but
the idea for the image and color scheme came to me fairly effortlessly
so I figured, why not? Plus, I knew Aaron Turner (ISIS/Hydra Head
Records) was a fan of those guys so that pretty much sewed it up for
me... Consequently, sometime after the Chicago show I acquired a 2XCD
bootleg of the entire Mogwai set from that evening and it's really
some pretty great stuff.

I leave the interpretation of the scene up to the viewer but
here's some information regarding the image: The dilapidated plow is a
Juno Listing plow from Case Plow Works of Racine, Wisconsin. This
particular model was introduced around 1897. The owl is a mutated form
of the tiny Boreal owl which have been known to cross the Canadian
border into Minnesota when their native hunting grounds become
exhausted.

As an aside, the Mogwai gig in question was booked by Eric Westra who
offered the poster job to Wezz. Eric is one of the folks behind Ladies
and Gentlemen magazine (lagmag.com) which is where the Over The Atlas
illustration originally appeared as a centerfold spread in their 2nd
issue.

awesome, and thanks for posting. Did you get the rest of the translation or did you do that part yourself?

To avoid confusion, this is NOT a translation from the German text, but the ORIGINAL English (email?) text that Aaron sent the LOW guys back in 2006.
