This adorable comic advertises the French National Lottery (Loterie Nationale). Inspired by a child's science class, this kid makes a witty remark about winning lottery tickets. The bold color and elementary-school fonts of this poster make it all-the-more eye-catching. This is part of a series done for Loterie Nationale.
