Ribbonesia workshop!



Because I’m a big fan of Ribbonesia art project, it was awesome that I could join his workshop to make a bird (kotori) at SHINDO showroom!
At first, we chose kotori’s colors… for head + body and its bill.
Bent beautifully, stapled some places… to make cute kotori.


I created it from blue & wine ribbons. I love it!

ita-sha art


Itasha is the name of decorated car by bishojo anime or manga characters.
Interesting but too brave to ride on the street… ita means painful, sha means car.


These photos are at Laforet Harajuku, artwork by Tomoyuki Sakaguchi – great CG fantasy itasha!
