It’s time for another heartwarming visit to the Department of Awesome Parenting where we meet David LaFerriere, graphic designer, “illustrator with geek-like tendencies,” and a completely awesome dad. Located in Attleboro, Massachusetts, David has been drawing delightful illustrations on his kids’ lunchtime sandwich bags since 2008 and has photographed almost all of them.
Consider the scope of this for just a moment: So many sandwiches… So many drawings… Over 1100 of them now and he’s still going!
David’s lucky kids get to enjoy new surprise drawings (and the sandwiches themselves) every day, but we get to enjoy them all at once over on his Flickr account.

Calgary-based multi-media artist Jeff de Boer created an awesome series of suits of real metal armour made specifically for Cats and Mice. We can’t help but imagine Tom and Jerry wearing this beautiful battle gear.
Visit Jeff’s website to view more armour suits from this fantastic series.

So one time, my parents had to go out of town for a reunion. I have some sensory issues that make driving difficult, if not impossible, and my parents didn’t want me alone all weekend so they sent me to stay with my friend Danielle.
When they returned from the reunion, they drove me up the street perpendicular to ours and I discovered that not only had my neighbor returned from wherever it was to where she’d disappeared, but she’d brought back a cow. To be more specific, a bull. Wearing a DARE To Keep Kids Off Drugs tee-shirt.
