Daniel's Daily Monster

Every school day since May 7th I’ve been drawing a little Monster Card for my son Daniel’s lunchbox. Not totally sure why I started this, but he enjoyed the first one, and it’s become a ritual. Every morning when making his lunch, I give myself 5 minutes to draw a monster on paper from one of those memo pad things, give it a name and quickly photograph it with the iPhone.

Sometimes they come out OK, sometimes they’re not so great. The important thing is seeing his reaction at the end of the day. #2 Mrs Wetherby didn’t go down too well – it was a bit girly for his tastes!

So far, I’ve managed 16, and I’ve started a Tumblr account to show them all: danielsmonster.tumblr.com
