A creative collaboration: the making of John Mayer’s album cover

Whether you like John Mayer or not, this eighteen minute documentary is worth a watch. The short film by Danny Cooke takes you inside the month-long, intricate process of English artist, David A. Smith’s, creation of John’s cover artwork. Smith specializes in “sign-writing circles with high quality, hand crafted reverse glass signs and decorative mirrors.” His speciality is just as ornate as it sounds; his hand for detail and demand for exactness are awe-inspiring. This ‘Behind the Scenes’ look takes you through the meticulous process that produced this “turn-of-the-century” album cover.
