Dave Blumenthal has released a new book of his drawings

Dave Blumenthal has released a new book, The Cartoon Chronicles of Sandwich Bag Dad, which is a collection of his most popular cartoon drawings.

The father of three gained popularity on social media in 2012 for his daily drawings on his children’s lunch bags.

What began as a simple form of affection for his daughter, Sharni, eventually transformed into a fully-fledged artform. In 2016, after receiving encouragement from his daughter’s teachers, classmates and school staff, he established multiple social media pages under the name ‘Sandwich Bag Dad.’

Since then, Blumenthal has amassed a large social media following, received global media attention, and has gone on to have his own exhibition at Australia’s National Cartoon Gallery.

His new book, The Cartoon Chronicles of Sandwich Bag Dad, is a collection of these photographed drawings combined with witty wordplay.

To this day, Dave Blumenthal continues to draw on his daughter’s lunch bags.
