This Illustrator Releases Cartoon Characters On The Real World
March 14, 2014

Marty Cooper is an illustrator and world-class doodler who occasionally goes by the pseudonym Hombre_McSteez. In this series, Cooper doodles on transparencies then takes pictures of them fooling around in the real world. There are eggs escaping from their cartons, flies drinking coffee, bananas riding alpacas, that kind of thing. It's a little like the pictures by October Jones, which swapped out the heads of train passengers for the heads of illustrated superheroes, but much broader in scope. Check out a few of our favourite images in the series in the gallery above. You can also see more on Cooper's Tumblr account, or on his Instagram feed.
