The Olympics seem to bring out the sports fan in all of us: Thanks in no small part to her enthusiastic tweets, the actress Leslie Jones is now officially headed to Rio to report for NBC. Meanwhile, across the pond, the artist Tracey Emin even took a break from her self-imposed sabbatical to produce some official fan art for Team GB. Her print – which is typically love-themed – is now available with those of seven other British artists (including David Shrigley, Eddie Peake, and Sam Taylor-Johnson) in a limited edition box set by Counter Editions. See their winning designs, here.
