Father-and-son collaborative lunch box comics

At the start of the school year, there’s always loads of magazine articles about ways to make lunch boxes ‘exciting’. Invariably one of the suggestions is to add a little note or joke for your child to read. Quite honestly, I find this idea a little naff but there’s always an exception…

Each day, Rob Kimmel draws half a picture on a sticky note for his eight-year-old son, Ben. He pops it in Ben’s lunch box and Ben completes the drawing and the caption at school.

Rob started the comic-in-the-lunch-box routine when Ben was in kindergarten and they have since collected their joint creations on their website, Wander Monster. This takes the ‘lunch box note’ to a whole new level and I’m quite certain that Ben’s classmates are all desperate to see the drawing each day – lucky (and very creative) kid!
