Amusing "Cartoon Bombing" Cleverly Interacts With Surroundings

For French illustrator Troqman, the world is a stage to display artwork that he calls “cartoon bombing.” The artist travels with a spiral-bound sketch pad and draws amusingly-exaggerated pictures that cleverly interact with their environment. Troqman has placed his handiwork in grocery store freezers, on the ledge of buildings, and even in the bathroom.

The small cartoon characters do remarkable things thanks to some well-considered placement. We see these people “vacuuming” up crumbs that are nearly their size, sitting in a tiny boat on a massive river, and trying to escape the confines of a bike lock. Troqman's quick drawing style and portable materials means that he can craft these illustrations on the fly and delight those passing by.
