Best Lunchbag Art Ever
Some parents, at least in TV commercials, draw a heart in their kid's PBJ. Peter Balogh elevates lunchtime art to a higher plane with his brilliant, whimsical, amusing drawings. The method? Freehand drawing with a Sharpie. The medium? His daughter's lunchbags. (He also posts them on his blog.)
Like a lot of things (freedom from responsibility, those adorable green rainboots shaped like frogs that never come in adult sizes), Balogh's lunchbag art makes us yearn to be a kid again. We can't go back in time, but we can, even as adults, enjoy a moment of beauty amid the mundane drills of daily life.
Art is where you find it, whether it's ensconced in a museum or scrawled on a lunchbag. We'll take the lunchbag, please.
