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.

Betype’s Against Cancer by Byron Galan.
“Byron: I made this poster to promote my campaign, I want to capture the attention of the young people that aren’t aware of Cancer by making a contrast of concepts, sometimes we are pissed off by little things as a dropped ice cream or youtube restrictions but if you stop and think how many people have hard problems in the world like cancer you will think twice before getting anger. Is far more easy to capture your attention with a simple and cute icon of a funny thing than showing the word in all caps: CANCER.”

“There is a massive internet photo trend brewing amongst youths in Japan right now that involves taking pictures of teens who appear to be releasing invisible energy that sends their peers flying. The photo mania is especially popular amongst schoolgirls who started the trend by uploading images on Twitter and labeling them as “Makankosappo”, a reference to a special attack in the popular manga-turned-anime Dragon Ball series.”
