Yet all of a sudden she shows up in a fat suit, and it's like I was jolted awake: "wow, she is gorgeous!"

An FA in a world of skinny models/actresses/celebrities is constantly wandering through endless media imagery, yet responding to it only vaguely; totally disconnected from what must be the daily, or even hourly, experience of most men. Like I say...odd.

No. Most men are not really particularly into Super Models or starlets in general. Although, probably most can think of one or two in particular, that's particularly attractive to them.

Yes, in as much as people chosen for these particular fields represent a kind of physical ideal; but it's not quite like you think, that every single heterosexual guy is supposed to go bananas over every single one of them. It's more like, the super-thin runway models serve to make clothes, at the extreme end of design, look good. For musical talent, it's to reflect a certain type of image. For TV, it certainly help to be good-looking, but in a more of a way to of appealing to the least common denominator; not to be any one person's particular physical ideal, but more to be attractive-enough to most people in general.

So, part of how these pieces challenge is in how you're getting a look at these somewhat familiar (and beautiful) faces & images, but from a starkly different angle. In your case, as a person who's into fat chicks, you're naturally suddenly more aware of how beautiful they are (and really were all along). But it's not like they suddenly become ugly to other people (e.g. non-Fat Admirers). Quite the contrary, they just become newly visible, as themselves, albeit from a drastically different point of view.

This guy is ok, I guess. But, at the risk sounding sort of critical, some of his stuff on deviantart is kind of crappy. For one, it's always the same thing, taking celebrities and making them fat. But worse, some of them are just too awkwardly photo-shopped. Although, the ones from the article you've cited do seem like his best yet.
