MrBomasBalloons has a great chimpanzee tutorial on YouTube.
One thing that very much impresses me about him is that he acknowledges and give credit to other balloon artists for their contributions to his designs. In this tutorial, he based his design on Happy Cabbie’s monkey design and made some alterations.
Acknowledgment is a huge value of mine and I am so happy to see people give credit where credit is due. Have you ever said something in a group and they don’t notice but if someone else restated what you said- suddenly everyone hears it and they all praise what a great idea it is and the person restating it doesn’t give acknowledgment that it was YOUR idea but instead takes credit?!!! I HATE THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my Gosh I hate that!
My intuition tells me that MrBomasBalloons would never do that and that he could probably relate so you are just all kinds of awesome MrBomasBalloons! 🙂
But I digress,lol.
Back to this tutorial,lol.
MrBomasBalloons has very cool and quick to make designs and he is a good intructor.
He is very laidback and casual.

My replication below. I accidently forgot to put thumbs on the feet,lol. I recommend using different legs for each butt cheek as I did not and I don’t think the butt cheeks come out as centered as a result.
