My name is Dave. For the past 8 years, I have been drawing dad joke cartoons on my children’s lunch bags. Just to make them smile and yeah, more often than not, groan and exclaim “Daaaaaaad.”
It all started when my eldest daughter started school. My wife began carving love hearts and other simple shapes into my daughter’s sandwiches. After a few days, I took over carving duties and then, eventually, found it was just easier to draw on the sandwich bags themselves. All of a sudden, a new daily ritual and hobby emerged. Lunch bag cartoons!
My daughter’s lunch bag drawing reveals rapidly became a big hit in her classroom… and a major talking point at parent-teacher evening. (“Your daughter is doing great… Can we talk more about your lunch bag drawings, though!?”) Eventually, I was persuaded by one of her teachers to create a social media account and share the cartoons. And so, @sandwichbagdad was born!
Today, I draw 3 bags per day, one for each of my 3 daughters. Pretty much day in, day out (although, thankfully, slightly less frequently while they are remote learning these days!) I get my inspiration from so many places: the news, my kids, even when out jogging. ‘Tooning is a great way for me to relax after a hard day. I work in corporate finance, so drawing and puns are purely a hobby.
And while my kids roll their eyes when they see their bags each day, I know they secretly get a kick out of them. They have even begun to hone the art of dad joking themselves now and frequently make their own cartoon suggestions!
So here’s a snippet of some of my faves. C’mon. “Loaf” out loud. You know you want to…

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today
Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.
Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
