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 40-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.
David’s illustration is of a person knitting. They have broad shoulders and short hair. Features associated with the masculine. The song is a loud and angry one that calls out behavior within the initial stages of getting together. A woman and a man. Let us pause here to consider the swirl of stereotypes and non-traditional actions.
