David Troquier coins the term ‘cartoon bombing’ from what started out as a break from the monotonous landscape drawing he was making during a vacation in the Greek islands. The Amsterdam-based illustrator doodles characters on paper and places them in humdrum environments to instantly transform the scene into an entertaining sketch straight out of a comic book. Armed with sketchbooks, pencils, and his iPhone, Troqman, as he likes to be called, is always on the lookout for adding a little creativity and lighthearted fun into a boring space and does his impromptu scene sketches solely for entertainment. Opportunities to create a story arise in everything and everywhere as Troquier doesn’t only see a hole in the floor but a perfect spot for some ice fishing, a loose toilet paper becomes the lifeline for a dangling man, and that garbage full of crumpled papers? It just became a scene straight out of a horror movie.
