Creative dad transforms boring school sandwiches into little works of art for his kids

January 14, 2014


I think David LaFerriere should be a brand ambassador for Glad bags. Each day, he does a work of art on his kids’ school lunch packet, so that they head off to class with more than just peanut butter on brown bread (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

What’s more surprising is that his kids aren’t even in preschool. Or primary school. His sons are in their teens, and still love their doodles.

LaFerriere, a Massachusetts-based graphic designer and illustrator, started drawing on his sons’ sandwich bags in 2008 and has been doing so ever since, without skipping a doodle.

“I always do them just after making the sandwiches,” LaFerriere told TheBlaze. “Occasionally, I may have an idea the night before but the drawing is done after the sandwich.”


Even if his plastic bag drawings never went viral, LaFerriere said he would still be making them for his boys.

“Heck, I had been doing them for over four-years when they started to get noticed around the world,” he wrote. “Bottom line: the attention just shows people that taking a little bit of time each day for your kids can have an impact.”

LaFerriere has gained enough attention that he’s even been featured by Flickr. Check out his video on Flickr’s website.
