If All Else Fails, Win New Friends Via Lunch Bags

If it seems like your child is having some trouble making friends in school, despite having given them every single piece of advice under the sun, you’re not out of luck. You may be able to draw some inspiration from a dad who wanted to help his son become more social, and the method he employed may surprise you.
Artist and father Dom Cabalo wanted to help his shy son out by giving him some conversation starters – illustrated brown lunch bags. In an effort to help break some ice for his son, he began to take plain brown bags and embellish them a little bit by creating stunning works of art on them. They feature famous characters from TV shows, movies, and many other subjects, all replicated with amazing accuracy and attention to detail.
Cabalo’s works of art have definitely made a huge impact – he’s found that his son has been able to interact so much more with his one-of-a-kind lunch bags, and so many kids are attracted to them. His son plays on a soccer team, and he’s found himself creating individual lunch bags for each of his teammates too!
As an artist, now I really have no excuse for not making any new friends.

“Obama Jambalaya” Thanks, Obama! (#noSarcasm) On today’s lunch bag, I wanted to observe the end of an era as an important change of power will happen here in the US. No matter what you think about his policies, President Obama has been the coolest President ever. Someone who, our family felt, represented what a president should be. Add the equally awesome @MichelleObama44 and you got yourself the ultimate first family. We’ll miss them terribly. #LunchBagArt #barackobama #USpresident #art #illustration #sketch #instaart #artistsoninstagram #disposableart #caricature #brownpaperbag #brownbagart #drawing #history
