The Making of John Mayer’s ‘Born & Raised’ Artwork

One of our favourite current artists is John Mayer and his 2012 album ‘Born and Raised’ is one that we highly recommend you should check out.

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 John Mayer and 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. We appreciate true craftsmanship at Ruark and it’s great to see a fellow craftsman at work… Watch and enjoy.
