Um. Wow. Could you imagine spending a year with that guy to learn even 1/10th of that craft?
i hope that he is passing it on to someone.
Wow. That is craftsmanship.
He draws it perfectly many times at many sizes and then converts it all to vector, then he paints it?
I had always admired the cover, but never knew how it came together. Thanks for the link.
this was superb!
I wonder how much he was paid?
I hate watching things like this. Makes me realise how little talent I have...
Very talented draughtsman. But retro and no concept.
Very nice work if feeling nostalgic - but its 2013.
I also wonder how much he was paid. I mean, that looks like months and months of work, hours and hours each day.
I imagine the average photographic album cover could be knocked out in a week plus photoshoot time. But this looks like tons more work.
If he was charging £400 a day (hardly anything for such rare skills and craftsmanship) for a month then that's £12,000 and I could see it costing more than that. But then I suppose if you hire a great photographer they cost a lot more than that for a shoot plus rights to the image etc. Plus design time.
It makes you think about how much record companies spend on this stuff. I guess Mayer sells a crapload of albums so it's nothing to him.
Makes me think I should have charged more for the album covers I've designed. But then I didn't do it in glass!
incredibly skilled guy, yes. And very pleasing to see someone who masters a craft and does not zombie away in front of a computer. But I think the finished piece does look as if it was made with illustrator. Somehow too much, too loud, too crammed, just an unconcentrated overkill. I think he wanted to pull off every fucking trick he can do and so it became this way. Would be cooler if he worked more within the constraints of this technique.
