Kings of Leon Album Cover

Dave Smith was commissioned to make the cover artwork for Kings of Leon, Beautiful War. This artwork was designed and sketched over 5 days, and a lot of fine detail was added to the drawings. The inspiration came from a trade card of flowers and lettering sent to Dave from their design team in New York.

Dave teamed up with Danny Cooke, a filmmaker from the UK and decided to film the process of the sketch through time lapse photography over the 5 days of sketching. Click here to view the film.
