nara Japanese pop artist, Yoshitomo Nara, has these intriguing drawings and sculptures that I'm fascinated by.  A lot of them depict children or animals in a cartoon fashion.  Some look very cute and innocent, others have a slightly angry look on their faces like you had just woken them up from a good nap or something.  Regardless I think they are pretty awesome and intriguing.  Here are just a few examples.
