Man, there are so many amazing parents! Meet Nina Levy, She is a Brooklyn-based sculptor, photographer, illustrator and mother. She has been using color markers to characters on lunch napkins for her two sons (Archer & Ansel) on a daily basis for over six years. According to Nina, she has created around 2,000 custom napkins. You can view them all online via her Daily Napkins blog.
Our napkins usually come back home along with all the uneaten food. My younger son actually uses them for their original purpose, while the other tells me, “oh, I only use the napkin to get attention, I just wipe my hands on my clothes.”
