Wednesday Whim - Leaf Beast

One of the best things about fall is seeing the changing of the leaves. As a kid, I loved the crunch of the leaves on the ground. Something about that process felt so magical to me. 

When I came across this project called Leaf Beast by Japanese artist, Baku Maeda, I loved the concept of using the leaves as a medium for art. Maeda used Magnolia leaves and took advantage of the shape and "veins" of the leaves. With minimal manipulation, Maeda changed the beauty of these majestic Magnolia leaves.
