Artoons is based on the observation that the relationship between cartoons and art sometimes appears a little one-sided. The likes of Roy Lichtenstein ensure that cartoons feature in art galleries, but do cartoons ever return the favour? Do works of art appear in kids comics? That’s what designer Krista Rozema wanted to find out. She trawled comics from Europe and America, finding dozens of often tiny paintings, sculptures and other objects in the houses and surroundings of cartoon characters. These miniscule works of art have been blown-up, and can now be admired on a massive scale.
