Evolving the Art of Calligraphy with @seblester

To see more photos and videos of Seb’s daily calligraphy creations, follow @seblester on Instagram.

"I suppose there is a ‘letterform evangelist’ aspect to my Instagram account," says illustrator and calligrapher Seb Lester (@seblester), “but calligraphy has an immediacy, and most people seem to appreciate it on some level.”

"Learning calligraphy is a wonderful journey through history for me," Seb explains. "My work blends my knowledge of the ancient art of calligraphy with my knowledge of modern design and technology." Sharing through Instagram, Seb says, mirrors this blending of the old and new. "I think it’s an excellent example of how well this ancient art form can translate to the Internet."

Didn’t think the view could be anymore perfect, until I saw that beat-up trilby. Honestly, Sixsmith, as ridiculous as that thing makes you look, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen anything more beautiful. Watched you for as long as I dared. I don’t believe it was a fluke that I saw you first.”

It’s not “bacon,” it’s a pig.

It’s not “veal,” it’s a calf.

It’s not “steak,” it’s a cow.

It’s not “meat,” it’s an animal…

its not “fruit”, its dividing cells that accumulate fructose…

it’s not delivery. it’s digiorno.

It’s not a scene, it’s a god damn arms race

It’s not “levioSA”, it’s “leviOsa”

Maybe it’s Maybelline
