Community exhibition: ‘The Cartoon Chronicles of Sandwich Bag Dad’ by Dave Blumenthal

Combining a love of art and wordplay, Boroondara dad, Dave Blumenthal, has drawn cartoons on his kids’ lunch bags since 2012. What started as an endearing idea to add some fun to his eldest daughter’s school day has since morphed into a collection of thousands of lunch bag cartoons and a social media following spanning the globe.

‘The Cartoon Chronicles of Sandwich Bag Dad’ is a celebration of Blumenthal’s lunch bag artworks that have entertained a growing, worldwide community of dad joke enthusiasts for nearly a decade. This community exhibition features a selection of Blumenthal’s greatest pun-filled, hand-drawn illustrations.

Detailed and whimsical, this exhibition will bring laughs, smiles, and endless creativity confined only by the size of a brown paper sandwich bag.

Visit Town Hall Gallery to view the full exhibition, on display from Tuesday 16 August until Saturday 24 September 2022.
