Pop culture's fascination with adorable pets and creatures persists in today's top trends with various series of adorable animal drawings. Artist Alexis Diaz created a variety of impression-leaving illustrations that combine the features of two very different animals to make one single creature. Combining a lion and a rat, as well as a rhino and a crab, these illustrations push the boundary in terms of weirdness and creativity.

Illustrator Dave Mottram used cutely sketched owl faces to represent the different reactions one can experience after drinking a cup of coffee. The birds wear faces like "half decaf" and "espresso," with the owls' eyes really portray the effects different amounts of caffeine have.
