Sometimes when we were kids, we used to draw tons of things on leaves. Leaves are so common to us since we see them everywhere; we stopped thinking about their versatility. However, one Japanese artist decided to use leaves as his canvas, and now he does magnificent leaf art. He draws full-out detailed scenes in small leaves that we’ve never seen elsewhere.
lito_leafart’s adorable creations range from critters in the supermarket to penguins perched on top of a turtle. Each leaf tells its own story and can be held in your hands like a children’s book illustration. He holds up each leaf to the sun before taking a photograph.
Each leaf will eventually die, but lito_leafart continues to expand her portfolio. As a result of ADHD, the talented artist creates one piece per day. This is to help him focus and calm down. His artistic talent and patience are evident in each leaf.
