Baku Maeda is the imaginative artist behind Ribbonesia. It all started when he took note of the the gross under-appreciation of the beauty and simplicity of ribbons and decided to do something about it. Combining artistry and his love of animals, Maeda created an entire menagerie out of folded ribbons. Pretty soon, his work expanded into nature-themed masks, headdresses, and designs. Maeda is currently based in Sapporo, Japan.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
