Above is Luke Easter looking all bemused, badass, and Tunde Adebimpe at the same time. In these specs, it’d be difficult to tell whether he’d be prepping to weld scrap metal into an awesome toboggan for his niece, play a show in the Bowery with his genre-defying, brass-steeped side-project, or deliver a lecture on comparative literature — he seems equally capable of each.
And if that wasn’t enough for NotGraphs fans to take notice of Mr. Easter (one doesn’t need a nickname with a name like that — well, maybe “Happy” would be good), then consider the photograph below, which features the subject donning eyewear that, when viewed by a particular set of nerds, will elicit great joy and/or fond or annoying memories of a certain oft-quoted low-budget indie film. Now, Mr. Easter seems additionally capable of manipulating space rockets — and teaching you a thing or two about how to treat a woman, as well. His skills, like his collection of eyeglasses, are beginning to seem infinite.
Look, I’m not saying that if you’re into NotGraphs you’re also a hipster, nor am I saying that you must have a soft spot for the twee-er than twee. (Maybe those are one and the same?) All I am saying is that Luke Easter has achieved some pretty great moments in spectacles.
Would you dare disagree?
