Aiden Glenn of Pizza and Pixels has taken to 'toon bombing,' or adding googly eyes onto urban objects in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The photography shows the artist's love of character design as he took to the streets of the Liberty Village neighborhood to give outdoor things new silly faces. This includes dumpsters, garbage cans, wall-affixed ash trays, doors, bike racks and traffic medians.

Along with googly eyes, he has taken to adding other props like teeth, tongues, moustaches and even eye glasses to add to the cartoon look. The googly eyes often have colored eyelids, giving the objects added personality and character. More of Glen's toon bombs and street art can be found on his personal Facebook page as well.
