Watch Ink Flow Through Water To Make These Mesmerizing Water Calligraphy Videos

We're hooked.

If you love calligraphy, you're sure to be mesmerized by artist Seb Lester's water calligraphy series, too. 

According to Lester's website, the artist has developed logos and type illustrations for companies and publications such as NASA, Apple, The New York Times, Nike, and more, and "in five years, he has become one of the highest profile calligraphers in the world." Lester has 1.1 million followers on Instagram alone, and thousands more watching his videos on YouTube

Among Lester's work is a collection of water calligraphy, in which the artist places water droplets and strokes on paper before gently adding in ink for color. The series, posted on Instagram, allows viewers watch the ink flow through the water and bring the text to life.


"Typography goals!" one Instagram user commented on Lester's "Style" video.
