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.
