Several years ago, I created a short profile documentary about UK based David A. Smith; a traditional sign-writer 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. ‘Born & Raised’ is the fusion of Mayer’s exceptional blues/rock music and Smith’s outstanding designs.
My new 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.

A special thanks goes out to John Mayer for the web-chat interview as well as Sony Music & Columbia Records for providing the instrumentals and licensing music from Mayer’s fantastic new album.
