:type travel tuesday: {true talent: david a. smith}

Hand-drawn illustration and typography by the immensely talented English designer, David A. Smith. He has true talent and is keeping alive the dying craft of hand-made glass sign art. He is so good that he kind of makes me just want to give up and curl up in a ball. Instead of doing that, however, I'm trying to be inspired to do even more of my design by hand, take my time, spend more time in the planning/sketching stages and to be more detail-oriented.

Below is a video of the making of this album cover for John Mayer. You can also see how David Smith makes some of his phenomenal glass signs. It's a bit long, but worth a watch. I also recommend click through and watching it on Vimeo so you can see it BIGGER.
