Most of the animals portrayed in pop culture are of the cute variety, except of course George "The Animal" Steele, who was really more "classically handsome". Benevolently putting the spotlight on less-cute/more-awesome critters, Third Half Studios.
Started by a local painting/quilting female duo, Third chucks weird-looking animalia onto art prints and dinnerware, using a bold-lined Japanese style known as "Chibi", which means "giant head, little body", the American term for which is "Minnie Driver". Set your food upon melamine plates featuring brain-munching, bloody clawed/hoofed/tailed "Zombie Park Animals" (squirrel, raccoon, deer, bunny) standing on long shadows; they're dishwasher safe, but warn you "do not microwave", as opposed to "do not, Microwave", a phrase nobody's ever dared utter to Vinnie Johnson. Zombies're also available as hand-signed/-numbered prints on Murano archive paper; they've also got three-piece sets of Crypto Zoo Animals against graphic wood backgrounds (Sasquatch, Chupacabra, Loch Ness, Yeti...), and circus-esque Sideshow Animals such as a Six-Legged Lamb and Kitty on a Bed of Nails, which she only tried once the rubbing alcohol wore off and she realized she was still married to Michael after he lost the election.
You can email Third for custom-painted works of all kinds (furniture, housewares...) or buy weird-patterned quilts/fabrics from their Spoonflower page, including the sepia-toned "Giant Flying Squirrel Attacks Ancient Peoples" -- also the subtitle for the last Monday Night Raw the Hulkster was on.
