Bill Rankin is one of the most creative minds in Cartography today.  His website is appropriately titled Radical Cartography.  

I love his work and would love to study under him at Yale.  This map above is one of 5 maps in an installation called "Wimby vs. Nimby".  When I first came upon his site, I spent more than 2 hours just combing through all of his professional and personal interests.  He doesn't update it frequently, but when he does, you know it's going to pack a 'bunch-of-punch'.

Cheers to Bill Rankin and
