Normal History Vol. 541: 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 35-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

“Jean Smith sells her 11″ x 14″ paintings on Facebook for $100 USD, making her work accessible to artists, musicians and writers she’s met along the way. Sales above her monthly expenses ($1000 USD) go towards opening the Free Artist Residency for Progressive Social Change off the west coast of Canada.” —Jes Reyes, Artists I Admire
