Normal History Vol. 442: 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.

Drilling
Fishing for gems offshore
When the season’s right
Bringing back sundrop
Loaded up ripe

Drilling for the right time
Drilling for the right time again

Coming up the long way
On the north slope

Trees are fine today

Drilling for the right time
Drilling for the right time again

Running with your eyes closed
Seeing without hearing
The oncoming wave

It’s alright

Drilling for the right time
Drilling for the right time again
Time again

“Drilling” from Dovetail (K, 1992) (download):
