Seb Lester is a designer & illustrator from the UK who practices calligraphy to sharpen his skills as a type designer. he shares snapshots of his sketchbook on Instagram, showcasing his impressive skills and doubly impressive foul mouth. these made me laugh, it’s always nice to see people not taking things too seriously. be sure to watch the video at the end of the post to see just how immensely skilled he is, crafting an alphabet in real time.
