Instagram phenomenon @_eavesdropper is an account with a simple premise, to creatively document weird and wonderful conversations unintentionally overheard around New York. Set-up by Saatchi & Saatchi NY art director, Mete Erdogan, as a project to help him hone his hand lettering skills, support for the account has snowballed and now has over 31 thousand followers.
Mete offers a no holds barred glimpse of New York life which has struck a chord all over the world and now around 250 of his illustrations have now been published in a collection, ‘Eavesdropper: Overheard on the Streets.’ Mete will also be appearing at NY ComicCon!
To celebrate this we thought we’d share a few of our personal favourites. How many of these were overheard on the floors of Saatchi & Saatchi NY… we couldn’t possibly comment.
Keen to share his honed expertise Mete also has a number of online classes on Skillshare where you can learn to create your own hand lettered artwork.
You can browse the full collection on Instagram (@_eavesdropper) or purchase Mete’s book on Amazon.
