My kiddo’s school had an event called Donuts for Dads where dads could pick their child from class and have some donuts with them in a gym and also listen to a speaker from First Things First.
I happen to be on the PTA and of course you know I had an idea for a column to make for a special decoration for the event,lol.
I wanted to make a dad with a little girl both with a donut in their hand coming out of a column.
I used a picture of a teacher made by this amazing balloon artist named Phileas Flash. Here is the link to picture and his Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=341834585950931&set=pb.267275606740163.-2207520000.1381938929.&type=3&theater
I need to practice making faces more. I found this really challenging which just let me know that it has been too long since I have made balloon faces and that I need to practice and hone up on that. I really feel that as far as twisted balloon face, Phileas has made the most awesome faces I have seen and I want to really take him as a huge influence on this kind of approach. Now Niko Fric, I really want to learn how to make faces overall like he does that deals with a totally different approach to faces. I want to learn it all and practice and master them all.
It was a huge hit with everyone and I am glad for that. Dads even took their kids on stage to get their picture taken with it. That made for huge mega warm fuzzies for me. No matter how much I have done- I am a perpetually insecure artist,lol.
Below are pictures of what I came up with for the event. I used the school’s colors for the column.
