Lynell Jinks, 42, is a creative dad who recently went viral after the former USA president Barak Obama shared one of his works on father's day. What kind of art does Lynell do you ask? Well, he draws on bags.


Show Full Text

His kids' lunch bags, to be exact. It all started about five years ago when his son, Izaac, now 11-year-old, went on a field trip. "My wife said I should draw his name on the bag. I drew Iron Man but instead wrote Izaac Man," he said.

Lynell shared, that his daughter Zelina, 12, was quite shy at school, so he figured that he could help her out by drawing on her bag too. "I drew Monster High on her bag as an ice breaker and conversation starter."

Now it became a tradition and his kids appreciate the illustrations and the motivational messages that the dad writes on the bags and have kept all of them.

Take a look at the collection of very artistic lunch bags below and vote for the ones you'd like to keep your lunch in.

These are beautiful drawings, all of them. I really feel as if he captured the spirit of the Obamas in these pictures. Great job!
