Artist Dad Draws Funny Characters on Sandwich Bags for His Daughters

0

It started out as a simple shape carved into his daughter’s sandwich to make her smile at school lunchtime. Today, it has evolved into a collection of thousands of sandwich bag cartoon drawings, a social media following spanning the globe and a dedicated exhibition at Australia’s National Cartoon Gallery.

Since 2012, Dave Blumenthal (a.k.a. Sandwich Bag Dad) has been combining his love of art and wordplay by drawing daily custom cartoons on his three daughters’ lunch bags to add some fun to their school day.

“My kids never know what they’ll get for school lunch each day. While they expect there will be a sandwich involved, what they don’t know is which eye-rolling pun or dad joke will adorn their brown paper lunch bag.

My name is Dave, although I’m much better known as the “Sandwich Bag Dad”. For the past decade, I have been drawing dad joke cartoons on my children’s lunch bags. Just to make them smile and yeah, more often than not, groan and exclaim “Daaaaaaad!”

Over the years, my daily drawing ritual has evolved into a collection of thousands of sandwich bag cartoons, a global social media following, a coffee table book and even a recent exhibition at Australia’s National Cartoon Gallery.

Over the last year, my tradition of drawing 3 unique cartoons per day for my each of 3 daughters has continued. Below is a collection of some of my favorite recent efforts,” he told Bored Panda.
