Watch a Calligrapher Perfectly Draw Famous Logos From Scratch With Pen and Ink Mesmerizing time-lapse Instagram videos

Remember when you were in middle school and you would doodle the logo of your favorite band on your Trapper Keeper? The Led Zeppelin logo, or Tupac's face, or the Grateful Dead bears? You'd feel like a badass when you came even remotely close to the original.

In that same spirit, here's a series of time-lapse Instagram videos from Sebastian "Seb" Lester—an English designer and calligrapher who's got some prettty impressive clients under his belt. 

Watch below as Seb magically re-creates the logos and marks of iconic brands like Google, Adidas, Star Wars and Converse with pen and ink and a steady hand. Lester says of his passion for language and lettering: "I find the Latin alphabet to be one of mankind's most beautiful and profound creations."
