538th Balloon Sculpture, Willy Wonka


I wanted to stretch myself some and so I did some balloon face distortion and came up with this Willy Wonka as a result. I was humming the song he sings about imagination…

“Come with me and you’ll be
In a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you’ll see
Into your imagination”

….and this is where my imagination took me as result.

I love Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka. I love his Mad Hatter like eccentric quality and the whimsical charm.

Boy it sure was hot and humid when I constructed him, and when I took pictures of him the balloons became chalky immediately. He didn’t withstand the weather well so I wasn’t able to give him away unfortunately.



537th Balloon Sculpture, Raccoon in a Stump Bouquet



I came up with this raccoon bouquet today and am super proud of it.

I am going to randomly give it out to someone today. 🙂

It is “popping” out of a stump and attempting to win someone over with a rose.

Hope you like it and that it brings some joy in your day!
