Dianxi Xiaoge, WATSON by Jim Horwitz

I discovered Dianxi’s videos on YouTube while looking around for videos on cooking. Dianxi’s videos are amazing, sublime, and deeply soothing. In each video, Dianxi prepares a different dish, using local vegetation that she prepares and then serves it to her family. After enjoying these highly professional videos, I wasn’t a bit surprised to learn that Dianxi has over 4 million subscribers on YouTube and (as one article noted) over 11 million fans worldwide. – Sometimes I have these videos on in the background just to enjoy their music and serene cooking sounds. These videos really are wonderful. For artist-types, I think these are great exemplars of someone taking pride and pleasure in performing her craft well for its own enjoyment and the enjoyment of others. I have no doubt Dianxi would’ve made a great cartoonist.
