When I first saw Lynell Jinks’ art I was blown away. These should be on large canvases seen by the masses, but they are just drawings on a paper lunch bag for his kids. I mean they look like they should take hours and he does this all the time, twice a day for his kids?!
He began to do so for his son, Izaac, when he had a field trip five years ago. Jinks said that, “My wife said I should draw his name on the bag. I drew Iron Man but instead wrote Izaac Man.”
He then began to do the same for his daugther Zelina who was a bit shy at school. He drew Monster High on her bag to help break the ice and start a conversation with the other kids.
Jinks recently went viral after President Obama gave him a shoutout on Instagram on Father’s Day.
Fast forward to now and he’s still doing it and somehow only has 5,500 followers?! Guys he’s a paper bag Picasso so give him a follow here and take a look at some of my favorite works of art below.
