In the village of Inakadate, Japan, elaborate expanses of “rice paddy art” grace the surrounding landscape. Looking for a way to boost tourism and contribute to the village’s rich culture, town officials turned to what they knew best — growing rice. Using dozens of varieties of rice as their color palette, locals gather to plant each new masterpiece, taking inspiration from local geography and Japanese folklore. With each image taking up to three months to complete, it truly takes a village.

This colored lithograph & watercolor cats poster by artist Henri de Toulouse Lautrec was part of an Exhibition of Drawings & Paintings in 1884.

Puddles Pity Party says, “We’ve been living in tough times. And it can really take its toll on ya. Try to take care of yourself. It’s ok to cry. I cry all the time. I love y’all.”

From The Longest Johns, “We originally hoped for 100 submissions for this project… When almost 500 turned up, we had to rethink our plans! It’s so amazing to watch this video and see the faces of people still keeping Folk Music and Sea Shanties alive all around the globe! A huge thank you to everyone who took part, and remember to keep singing! Hopefully this video gives you a bit of optimism for the future at the end of such a dreary year.”

Puddles Pity Party covers David Bowie’s classic, “This is a tune from my sequestered stream show last autumn. I asked my pal Nick Gibbons to re-edit it for me. He’s a top notch weirdo.”
