Sometimes, his kids offer some editorial direction. One Star Wars drone drawing was made more menacing with the addition of a red wig and braids, at his daughter's request. She also suggested that he color it pink. "She was right," he says. "It was a lot scarier that way." (Rainbow Dash and her sonic rainboom, though? A-OK.) less

If we were Derek Benson's kids, we'd never buy lunch at school -- we love his hand-drawn lunch bags way too much to pass one up. The Atlanta-based dad started drawing on his kids' brown paper lunch bags in 2008, and they've become such a hit that his kids' friends and teachers have started collecting them (and he's gathered quite a following online). A video game developer with a background in graphic art, Benson finds inspiration in the TV shows and books he shares with his kids Dana, 12, Dylan, 8, and Liam, 6 -- lots of Japanese animation and other "geeky" stuff, he told Yahoo! Shine. Take a look. -- By Lylah M. Alphonse, Senior Editor, Yahoo! Shine.
