Every day since kindergarten Rob Kimmel has sent his son to school with a post-it note and pen inside his lunchbox. On the colored paper is a half-completed illustration and half-completed story that his son then finishes. Holy cow, brilliant. Also really like “My favorite constellation is the Nerd“. I had a friend in grade school whose dad drew intricate pencil illustrations of space ships and scenes on his hard-boiled eggs and I always thought it was the coolest thing. My dad sent me to school with a thermos accidentally filled with red wine, but that’s a story for another day. See also: Axe Cop. (via quips)
