@wiisaakodewinini (Dylan Miner), #justseeds artist, just created two new #graphics in solidarity with the Standing Rock resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline on the justseeds blog. . Currently the US empire is trying to build a pipeline that destroys Sioux nation sacred water sites, and they are cutting off water to the protestors. You can also read more about Standing Rock Dakota Access Pipeline Opposition and receive a poster of Dylan’s art if you donate 25$ to the protestors.

In 1860 the first Japanese embassy to tour the United States witnessed the launch of two hot air balloons. Philadelphia planned this spectacular event to welcome their guests. This woodcut is a close copy of an illustration from the published diary of an embassy member. The Japanese had never before seen hot air balloons and artists were inspired by the human flying machines. Happy National Aviation Day!
These look like the perfect coloring pages. And, *bonus*, they are from one of the most important illustrated printed book of the Renaissance, Franceso Colonna’s Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (“Strife of Love in the Dream of Poliphilus”).
The mysterious hieroglyphs and arcane symbols found in the woodcuts of Francesco Colonna’s Hypnerotomachia Poliphili (“Strife of Love in the Dream of Poliphilus”) were highly influential to artists through the 19th century.
