Normal History Vol. 429: The Art Of David Lester

Every Saturday, we’ll be posting a new illustration by David Lester. The Mecca Normal guitarist is visually documenting people, places and events from his band’s 33-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

Not Standing Still

You might say,
“Why do I fight?
Change won’t happen”

Well, not overnight

Why do you think
we’re standing still?

We’re not standing still

Change will happen.
Oh yes, it will

You might say,
“We’re standing still”

We’re not standing still
