The Department of Awesome Parenting just discovered yet another amazing parent who turns their child’s school lunches into a mini art show. Minneapolis-based freelance designer and illustrator Bryan Dunn, aka The Bag Dad, has been illustrating his son’s brown paper lunch bags for two years now, ever since the boy’s very first day of school.

Each colored pencil drawing takes Bryan about 20-30 minutes to complete. He usually works on them during his own lunch break. Because the bags don’t always make it back home after school, Dunn started photographing each bag before filling it with his son’s lunch.

You can see them all over on The Bag Dad Facebook page. You can also follow his lunch bag artwork here on Tumblr.

Miami-based artist and art teacher Brian Reedy creates awesome woodcut illustrations of monsters, superheroes, supervillains from movies, comic books and video games, dystopian scenes, and mythical deities and creatures. It’s a striking combination of contemporary pop culture imagery with centuries-old illustration technique.

"Reedy’s work is a satiric commentary on current society. His style is an exaggeration and hyper-detailing of the comic book and cartoon genres. He often peppers humorous elements in his prints that range from hidden references to hilarious captions."

Visit Brian Reedys website and his Woodcut Emporium Etsy shop and to see more.
