The making of “Born & Raised”

TheeBlog-Born&Raised You might remember a post from last year in which we enjoyed the stunning and inspiring work of David A. Smith and his collaboration with John Mayer in the creation of Mayer’s cover for his latest album Born & Raised. (HERE) If you enjoyed that post as much as I did, I have a treat for you today! I had the pleasure of e-meeting talented UK based Director and Film-Maker Danny Cooke, who was kind enough to share his recently launched short film, featuring the process and inspiration behind this great album cover as well as some beautifully shot scenes. Thank you Danny!

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.
