Damn, looks like I snoozed and losed on this entry, since the full-sized illo is no longer available and there was never a permalink for the article (here's the abstract). Maybe because it was a regional-only piece? Anyway, I like indie comic artist David Heatley's carnivalesque imagining of a New York City Winter 2014 Olympics. It's clear here that Heatley digs folk art: he joyfully breaks free of scale and perspective and fills the canvas with a crazy quilt of decorative motifs. He makes a great, surprising choice for this subject.
