Born and Raised – John Mayer Album art

Craftsmanship isn’t dead it’s just living inside of David A. Smith’s workshop. My jaw dropped when I saw the┬ápainstaking┬ádetails he puts into each and everyone of his amazing pieces of work. Jiro’s met his match in terms of love of craft I think.

Details from Vimeo – David A. Smith is a traditional sign-writer/designer specialising in high-quality ornamental hand-crafted reverse glass signs and decorative silvered and gilded mirrors. David recently produced a wonderful turn-of-the-century, trade-card styled album cover for popular American singer/songwriter John Mayer.

This film captures the ‘Behind The Scenes’ creation of the ‘Born & Raised’ and ‘Queen of California’ artwork, as well as 2 unique reverse glass panels, hand-crafted in England by David A. Smith.
