THE NOISE GENERATED BY SHERYL SANDBERG’S edict for women to Lean In would fall to mere whisper if more dads were like David Laferriere of Attleboro, Mass.
Since May 2008, the graphic artist has been garnishing his sons’ school sandwich bags with monsters and dinosaurs, faces and space rockets. There are 1,070 drawings in all.
“Each drawing is done just after I make the sandwich,” he writes. “I take a picture and post to flickr. My kids don’t see the drawing until it is lunchtime.”
“Nothing like making your kids smile!,” he comments. Nothing indeed.
“The inspiration for the bags comes from whatever may be happening at the time,” Laferriere told the Huffington Post. “Could be something we did as a family, a holiday or a day like Ground Hog’s Day. The weather sneaks in from time to time.”
Maybe one of New York’s highfalutin publishers can take time away from preening over Facebook’s Sandberg and lean in toward Mr. Laferriere.
This one’s titled “Roarrrrr.”
He calls this a snake-like creature.
As Groucho Marx once said, “A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.”
Your generic sandwich monster.
The Monsta Monster. Does he taste as good as he looks?
And who could forget the standard dinosaur?
Froggy went a courtin’, a ha.
Do you think he’s funny like a clown? Yes, yes we do.
Your standard ho ho ho bag.
