Dad Creates Epic Artwork on Lunch Bags to Help Son Make Friends

The best dad ever!

When we were still kids, parents would make sure that we had everything we needed before going to school – one of which was our lunch bags. Dominick, a dad hailing from California, is among those parents who take pride in preparing lunch for their kids. But mind you, he does it in a very different way.

For over 4 years, Dominick has been drawing on his son’s brown paper lunch bags. And mind you, his drawings are a work of art. According to him, he has managed to decorate more or less 550 bags. It is really amazing how passionate and determined he is.

Although his son is already in middle school, Dominick still continues to prepare and decorate his lunch bags. There was even a time when he decorated all lunch bags for his son’s soccer games when it was their turn to prepare snacks. For other people, breakfast might be the most important meal of a day but for Dominick, it is, without a doubt, lunch!

Check out the drawings below and be inspired by his creativity!

Disney Animator’s Comics Diary About Losing His Wife is Terribly Heartbreaking

Read the captions and try not to cry.

Losing a loved one can be a sad, traumatic experience. People deal with the grief differently and for this man, keeping a ‘doodle diary’ has been most helpful.

A former illustrator for Disney, Gary Andrews’ comics about losing his wife and living life as a single father of two is heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. No wonder his work has made an impact to his numerous followers on social media.

In a BoredPanda feature, we learn that Gary began doing his comics-style journal entries back on his 54th birthday. He was happily married at the time and a father of two children.

Unfortunately, something tragic happened. His wife Joy got sick and they initially thought it was nothing but flu. It turned out, however, that it was actually sepsis and it eventually led to her death.

Gary shared:

“From the minute Joy was admitted to hospital, specialists from every department tried to find out what was wrong. They couldn't have done more. It wasn't until the post-mortem that they narrowed it down to sepsis.”

Overwhelmed by his sadness, Gary later turned to his notebook and began pouring his emotions out on paper – by making artworks.

He recalled:

“I was crying so hard it was difficult to focus on the page. I was drawing through tears.

“Joy had been my soulmate for 19 years. She was beautiful, kind, generous and funny. We did everything together. When I lost her, I felt half of me had gone.”

Now his touching comics have captured the hearts of many on the internet.

Artist Creates Satirical Illustrations to Answer What’s Wrong in Today’s Society

These illustrations are downright brutal and honest.

For the common people, art is all about pleasing one’s eyes. But to those who have pledged their selves to it, art is all about the transfer of ideas and thoughts. For decades, Australian cartoonist Gerhard Haderer has been creating satirical illustrations that highlight reasons why today’s society is far from being perfect.

In fact, Haderer had faced the court thanks to one of his books titled, “The Life of Jesus.” It basically triggered violent reactions in Europe, particularly from the Catholic Church. The story surfaced sometime in 2005 when he was convicted in Greece for badmouthing the country’s religious community. He eventually received a six-month suspended sentence in absentia. A couple of months later, the initial verdict was corrected via an appeal resulting to Haderer’s acquittal.
