If you have not seen Thomas Perkins AMAZING lunch bag art then YOU MUST!  So AWESOME!

From Thomas Perkins Luch Bag Blog:
"Welcome to My bit of silliness, The Lunch Bag Blog. Herein shall you find my daily excursion to amuse my three children by decorating their lunch bags. As an animation designer I draw everyday, working to bring the Saturday Morning Goodness to the masses... but each day begins my doodling for my three munchkins in the endeavor to give them a grin throughout their day at school. Take a gander. Mayhap something here will amuse you too."
