There are few things that can help make a brown bag lunch the coolest part of a kid’s day. Awesome napkin illustrations of cats and robots appear to be one of those things.

After some time illustrating random pop culture characters and inspirational messages on her sons’ lunch napkins, Mom/artist Nina Levy has refocused her attention on internet-famous cats and robots.

Baymax and Grumpy Cat, R2-D2 and Limecat are just a few of these unusual duos that help make lunch awesomer. See more below.

Junk Food Plated To Look Like Gourmet Meals


Although most junk food doesn’t need anything more than garish packaging and a shiny sugar-coating to appeal to our eyes — there are ways to make it seem more sophisticated.

Chef Jacques Lamerde, using master plating skills, takes some of our favorite sugary and salty items, and makes them appear gourmet.

He even applies fancy menu-naming techniques to the plates of Hot Pockets, Pop-Tarts and Munchkins, to help complete the culinary ruse. See more below and over at his Instagram.

The Burrito Costume Is A Delicious Disguise


San Francisco artist Lauren O. Venell, who recently encouraged us to snuggle up to a giant burrito, now wants to BE the burrito.

The Bold Burrito costume was made for a video series for Bold Italic. It sees Lauren wearing the handmade burrito costume, roaming the city and doing people things. I think if she had gone to Chipotle dressed like that, she could’ve gotten free chips and guac… not sure.
