Lunch Sack Poetry by Kermit Mulkins


Who wouldn't want a dad like Kermit Mulkins? One day, his daughter Darbi had her zipper break on her favorite lunch bag. Instead of replacing it, he started doodling cats and characters on brown paper bags. (He even created an Angry Birds one.)

For his wife Maria, he couples his art with funny or sweet poems saying, “My lovely wife likes when I write.” On his website, you'll also find one that Mulkins made for his friend, called Eros' Arrows, that feels like he's taken the idea to a whole ‘nother level. The original poem and the beautifully tragic illustration go perfectly hand in hand together.
