It started out as a simple shape carved into his daughter’s sandwich to make her smile at school lunchtime. Today, it has evolved into a collection of thousands of sandwich bag cartoon drawings, a social media following spanning the globe and a dedicated exhibition at Australia’s National Cartoon Gallery.
Since 2012, Dave Blumenthal (a.k.a. Sandwich Bag Dad) has been combining his love of art and word play. Every day, he draws custom cartoons on the lunch bags of his three daughters to keep them amused and to add some fun to their school day.
The Cartoon Chronicles of Sandwich Bag Dad is a collection of Dave’s most popular and endearing lunch bag drawings. Witty, pun-filled and 100% ‘dad jokey’. The accompanying sandwiches are, however, sold separately!
