> About lunch posts + wandermonster

09.12.17

Wandermonster is a project of Rob Kimmel Design, an independent creative studio. I also teach at Pratt Institute. I am currently pursuing a dual MA in Children’s Literature and MFA in Writing for Children at Simmons College.

The blog was originally started when my wife and I journeyed for a month in Morocco with our then-five-year-old son, but it’s mutated into a forum for the Lunch Posts. This short video explains it all.

Every day of school, from kindergarten through third grade, I sent my son off with a sticky note fixed to the inside lid of his lunchbox. Each of these little pieces of colored paper bore a half-completed drawing and a half-written story. I anxiously awaited picking him up after school to see how he finished these miniature comics. If you want to know more, this interview will do the trick.

We got written up in places as diverse as Gawker’s io9 blog,  the LA Weekly, the Wall Street JournalApartment Therapy, Wired, EW.com, Quipsologies, Communication Arts, designworklife , HOW magazine, and Gotham magazine. I’ve written an article about the Lunch Posts and “creative parenting,” for the July 2011 print issue of HOW Magazine  Australian kids’ magazine BIG featured our work . Parenting blog Ohdeedoh  gave us a nod for their “Ohdeedad” week.
