Normal History Vol. 460: 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 34-year run, with text by vocalist Jean Smith.

David recently showed me the fantastic illustrations for his chapter in a yet-to-be-published book about radical labor history. I was totally amazed by this particular work!

I have my moments of creating political art, but I definitely factor in David’s fearlessness as an inspiration. I find it completely incredible that he continues to come up with thought-provoking and beautiful political cartoons for this column every week. Maybe it’s time for a Best Of David Lester From The History Of Normal book.
