I almost love this intricate album illustration more than John Mayer himself (ha I’m joking John).
I am also more intrigued by the pencil sketches than the pristine final piece. You can really see the mind and the hand working together.
David Smith is a traditional ornamental glass artist. Since 1984 Dave has been creating some of the most beautiful signs in the UK. Recently he was commissioned to design the cover art for the Born & Raised album from John Mayer. Here is a short documentary showing Dave’s process.
