A dad who helped his daughter overcome personal tragedy in an amazing way.
For the past 380 days in a row, Luke Pieczynski has been crafting personal sketches of inspiration and love using the humble post-it note.
A father of 3, Luke’s eldest daughter lost not only a close friend but also a creative inspiration when her teacher was tragically killed when she was just 4.
Fearing that she would loose connection with others, Luke, who works as an interactive art director in Virginia, USA, started crafting personal sketches on post its and left them in her school bag.
‘These really have to go online’
Having started sketching 2-3 times a week he was encouraged to put them online and as the feedback from both daughter and community got stronger and stronger he set himself a challenge – to sketch a note, everyday for a year.

His startling array of sketches gave him a chance to teach other kids how to draw at a local school recently, which Luke says ‘ was an incredibly humbling and awesome moment to see others creating sketches and sharing them.’
‘I really like them because you did them’
“My best moment was recently when I asked my daughter about the sketches and she said – I really like them, because you did them.’ What greater feedback in the world is there than that!? Luke’s second daughter is now getting in on the action and Luke has begun crafting personal notes for her too.
With lessons and more how-to videos in the pipeline, Luke now wants to inspire other dads around the world to be part of Lunch Note Sketch and share more special notes with our special ones all around the world. Just tag your notes on social media with #LunchNoteSketch.
