A Dad's Lunchpacks
In 2008, David LaFerriere decided to surprise his kids at school, drawing on the sandwich bags he packed in their lunches.Source: flickr.com
The kids loved it, so he kept drawing.Source: flickr.com
Every day at lunch they’re greeted with a new creation that their dad has made for them.Source: flickr.com
Not to mention a fun reminder that lets them know their dad is thinking about them while he’s at work.Source: flickr.com
Sometimes his drawings are very straightforward.Source: flickr.com
With some graphic-design humor sprinkled in, since that’s Ferriere’s occupation.Source: flickr.com
Sometimes his drawings transform the way that you see the sandwich itself.Source: flickr.com
Like when the bread becomes a creature.Source: flickr.com
Or a lilypad for a frog to hang out on.Source: flickr.com
Or a den for a bear drinking its morning coffee.Source: flickr.com
Or a different lunch altogether.Source: flickr.com
Or one that’s been partially eaten already.Source: flickr.com
Sometimes his drawings get philosophical.Source: flickr.com
Or wishful.Source: flickr.com
Or inquisitive.Source: flickr.com
Sometimes they’re just downright clever.Source: flickr.com
I mean, really, look at that bubble incorporation!Source: flickr.com
Flawless optical illusions defy laws of logic.Source: flickr.com
Inspired bubble incorporation brings characters to life.Source: flickr.com
Downright tricky fake-out maneuvering makes a sandwich look like a sandwich even though… it’s a sandwich.Source: flickr.com
Birthdays are celebrated on the bags.Source: flickr.com
Other holidays, too.Source: flickr.com
Halloween gets its mention.Source: flickr.com
So does Thanksgiving.Source: flickr.com
Lately there’s been some Christmas sandwiches.Source: flickr.com
Even American Snowman Gothic has made an appearance.Source: flickr.com
Dave’s work has been featured on Sharpie’s website and his following has grown, as more online artists have taken notice of his work.Source: flickr.com
He says that despite the fame he’s gained from the project, the drawings he makes will always be primarily an act of love for his sons.Source: flickr.com
“The sandwich bags are something that my boys and I share together,” he told flickr. “But the comments people leave about a parent doing something similar really touches me, because there are other parents that love their kids just as much. And they love them enough to leave a little note, a little whatever it may be… that’s just something that brightens their day when they get to their lunch.”Source: flickr.com
Now five years after that first drawing was made, he has created over one thousand lunchtime surprises, cataloging them all on Flickr.Source: thekitchn.com
The Sharpie brand even contacted David to ask to feature his work on their blog. David says that the most touching comments he receives are from parents who do similar things for their kids... just because they love them.
