If you're looking for some badass humanimal shots, look no further than the Alejo Giraldo 'Animal Gangs' artwork. The Barcelona-based artist has created four imaginary rivaling wild gangs, from 'The Lower East Side Bandana Foxes' to 'The East Village Zebra Punks'. The illustrations are a hilarious tribute to hipster fashion, acting as both a parody and nod to the way of life. My favorite piece is 'The Upper East Side Dagger Cats', which features the classic Wayfarer-style frame on a very 'cool cat.'

Featuring bright neon colors, the Alejo Giraldo 'Animal Gangs' series will help cure any 1990s nostalgia you might have, with electric blue zebra-print sunglasses and a zebra wearing sunglasses himself. The collection was originally designed for a Threadless t-shirt contest, but is now available in prints. This is one designer who knows how to make a statement.
