Tall Tales

Lunch Bag Dad

July 22, 2016

I’m not exactly sure how all this got started. My daughter, Emily, might comment below after she sees this, because her memory is likely better than mine. Each morning during the school year, I’d draw a little something on her lunch bag. Eventually, I started doing them on Carson’s lunches (pictured below) as well.

My routine

  1. Think of a topic and find an image on the Internet.
  2. Use the computer image as my drawing reference.
  3. Try to always get a “lunch” reference in there.

I don’t have a lot of time (rather not get up earlier), so these are quick, taking me anywhere between 5-15 minutes.

A Pittsburgh buddy of mine is known as The Chalking Dad, and he made the suggestion that I should call myself the Lunch Bag Dad. Not likely, but I will throw it in the headline, Erik. :-)

That said, here you go.
