This Series by Keith Rodri is Frustation-Filled and Aggressive

Laguna Beach, California-based illustrator Keith Rodri has a knack for punchy, crisp figurative art judging by his recent series titled, 'I Do this Every Time.'

From gun-toting lizards to teeth-clenching mushrooms, the illustrations depict a slew of strange, aggressive creatures. Perhaps this consistent grumpiness is what Rodri means by, "I do this every time."

The illustrations also manage to convey the anger, tension and frustration of their subjects without raising the viewer's own blood pressure. This can be owed to the way Rodri cleverly depicts his figures realistically enough that their emotions can be related to but maintains just enough cartoonish levity that they don't become overly dramatic.
