Normal History Vol. 575: The Art Of David Lester

Every week, 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 36-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

Putting together paintings for the Jean Smith $100 USD Paintings show at Land Gallery in Portland in May. Thrilled that the folks at the gallery are supportive of my objective to open the Free Artist Residency For Progressive Social Change. Mecca Normal plays the opening May 9.
