British calligrapher Sebastian "Seb" Lester freely admits that he likes to doodle. But whereas the typical doodler creates haphazard chicken scratches while sitting in the back of the classroom or the far end of a conference table, Lester recreates iconic logos worthy of recording. And that's precisely what he's done, uploading videos on his Instagram that depict the designer using nothing but pen and ink to render instantly recognizable logos on paper. Watch Lester put his calligraphy tools to work in the following videos, with famous brands like Nike, FedEx, Converse and Google materializing with just a few deft strokes of his pen.
