The Seb Lester Instagram sketches provide a virtual window to the artists' portfolio. Lester is a celebrated illustrator based in the UK, praised in large part due to his exceptional knack for calligraphy.
Present within his Instagram account are an assortment of dark, humorous and often perverse messages. Phrases that read "Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, you have a lovely arse" and "I never met a calligrapher who wasn't ripped to the tits on drinks & drugs" abound the forum, prompting readers to giggle at the site of the looped letters. Interestingly, while these messages come across as unexpected and quite crass, they are couched in beautiful and intricately laid out fonts.
