Father Makes AMAZING Lunch Bags for Son

20 Pictures of Lunch Bag Art One Dad Makes for His SonI can almost see the other kids at school. The friends who come up to get a close-up look at today’s lunchtime art exhibit, and even the too-cool kids who walk by with craned necks to catch a glance without seeming to. In my mind’s eye, I even see the teachers making a routine of eagerly coming to check them out. Who wouldn’t?!?

This is one dad’s way of showing his love. He’s got an artistic gift and he uses it to, in turn, give the gift of fun and art to his kid and, well, let’s be honest, make his child the most popular person at school probably.

BEHOLD!

20 pictures of what this dad does for his kid on brown-paper lunch bags!

  • I’M BATMAN! 1 of 20
    I'M BATMAN!
    This caped crusader strikes fear in the hearts of would-be lunch thieves. And envy in the heart of every… single… schoolmate.
  • E.T. Phone Home 2 of 20
    E.T. Phone Home
    The only way this could have been more rad is if it he went to school with it on a day with dissection assignment in class, and there was an epic releasing of the frogs moment like in the movie E.T.
  • Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man 3 of 20
    Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man
    Everyone at school could probably agree that, "well there's something you don't see every day." It's the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man from the end of movie Ghostbusters. And he is amazing.
  • Susie & Calvin 4 of 20
    Susie & Calvin
    The age old war of genders is most amusing when you have a little girl who eats all of the ingredients of her sandwiches separately pitted against a little boy who often imagines his food is an alien space blob sent to destroy him.
  • Angry Bird 5 of 20
    Angry Bird
    Meet Red Bird, a desert cardinal and the leader of the Flock of the insanely popular game Angry Birds. His flying head butts can demolish fortresses of wood glass as if they were made of... wood and glass.
  • Bomb, the Black Bird 6 of 20
    Bomb, the Black Bird
    This Angry Bird character combines being angry with the ability to explode. Those enemy pigs and school bullies don't stand a chance.
  • WILSONNNNNN! 7 of 20
    WILSONNNNNN!
    The volley ball from the movie Castaway.I wonder how long it took before the kids in the lunch table started involving lunch-bag Wilson in the conversation.
  • Saruman the White 8 of 20
    Saruman the White
    This kid must have been the Lord of the Lunch bag. One lunch bag to rule them all...
  • My Old Mac 9 of 20
    My Old Mac
    This rendition of a classic Mac may look like an overweight Game Boy, but this computer helped launch the industry of personal computing and one of the world's most powerful brands.
  • Sonic & Tails 10 of 20
    Sonic & Tails
    Oh so you want to be the most popular kid at school. Here you go. From the massively popular video game series Sonic the Hedgehog, these two must have been sure to impress the kids as they stuffed their faces with Hot Cheetos.
  • Daria Morgendorffer 11 of 20
    Daria Morgendorffer
    Smart and cynical, Daria is a character created on the gullible and not-so-smart Beavis and Butt-head series. She was smart enough to get her own spinoff show. That didn't involve frogs being used for batting practice.
  • Hipster Ariel 12 of 20
    Hipster Ariel
    The Little Mermaid was always fascinated with land folk and their culture; she's always finding and collecting vintage human artifacts that showcase her indie counter-culture hipster vibe.
  • Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz 13 of 20
    Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz
    He's a bad guy from the hit TV show Phineas and Ferb. Teachers may have had to post signs for kids to stop open-jaw gawking. It's a pretty popular show.
  • Marvin the Martian 14 of 20
    Marvin the Martian
    This famous Looney Tunes character's design was based on a the Roman god war, Mars, which is a funny choice for a toddling little villain whose soft voice always sounded like he had a phlegm bubble in his throat.
  • The Minions 15 of 20
    The Minions
    The Minions are little, yellow, pill-shaped creatures that serve Steve Carell's character, Gru, in Despicable Me. The Minions weren't nominated for 18 Academy Awards and 12 Golden Globes, but kids LOVE them, so this one probably went over preeeetty well at school.
  • Adventurous Game Boy 16 of 20
    Adventurous Game Boy
    This is a double rainbow here. BMO is a character from the quirky kids' cartoon Adventure Time, but the double part comes from the fact that the character is modeled after an old school Game Boy, but is has a bunch of modern capabilities. And is alive.
  • Skunkinator 17 of 20
    Skunkinator
    The skunkinator is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are STUNKIFIED.
  • SpongeBob SquarePants 18 of 20
    SpongeBob SquarePants
    The literacy rate in America ain't what she used to be, but there isn't a kid a school kid who doesn't know the answer to the question: Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
  • Space Ghost 19 of 20
    Space Ghost
    This is a cartoon character that most kids, heck!, a lot of adults won't "get." Hanna-Barbera aired the cartoon Space Ghost in the late '60s. Classic! The animation from the show was also used more recently on Cartoon Network's late-night talk show Space Ghost Coast to Coast.
  • Werewolf 20 of 20
    Werewolf
    Can you imagine bringing this lunch to school on Halloween. Pretty amazing when the art on a lunch sack is more impressive than any costume you'll see trick-or-treating later that night.

To answer the question some of you may be asking, about what ultimately happens to these brown-paper-bag-sterpieces: I DO NOT KNOW.

I’m just glad pictures were taken before the ravages of school lockers and eating areas took their toll on these amazing creations. For me, as a dad and as an artist, these are so amazing they’re like an exquisitely decorated cake I wouldn’t want ruin by cutting and serving. The idea of these going off to school to store food and get crumpled and ultimately tossed in the trash makes me wince a little. But it seems like this dad could just keep them coming, so he’s a great dad and a much better artist than me for doing this.

Ugh! I just love this so much! Not just because they are insanely rad, but because of the time and care these took to make, the love it shows. But also the insanely rad part, I MEAN COME ON! Look at ‘em! UGH!!! Brilliant!
