25th May - Platypus
Here is a Platypus, I am not totally sure if I like my design for this one but I guess he is ok, I will have another go later in the year with another design idea I have. There are 14 balloons used in this platypus, mostly 260s but with a 160 thrown in here, the 10 balloons does include the 4 old yellow balloons I cut up to make the claws.
Coming up on June 2nd, I will be doing a live balloon sculpture at the Aspex Gallery in Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth, it is to help celebrate the Camp Bestival Around the World Tour, between the hours of 11am and 2pm I will be creating my biggest sculpture of the year so far (at nearly 6 feet across and 5 feet tall, eeek) there will be lots of other activities taking place in the gallery and I will update you on those nearer the time.
