InterNERD Classic: Balloon Art

Hey InterNERDers. If you read this humble little site on the regular then you know that I just moved. In the mayhem that is moving I am doing an InterNERD Classic this week. We have done 4 Balloon Art installments, but here is the original post that started all the balloon love. We will be back with an all new Found On The InterNERD next week.

Welcome back InterNERD fans. This week it’s all about balloon art, and not just the simple dogs that creepy clowns make for kids. Nope, balloon sculptures have come a long way. These artists twist and create awesome pieces for all to enjoy. Here are the coolest, nerdiest balloon art I found on the InterNERD.

Balloon Gizmo. I still wouldn’t get him wet or feed him after midnight. This Gizmo balloon is top notch. Made by artist Brian Garner, he is actually available for hire at events. His contact info and balloon gallery can be found at balloonnerd.com

Balloon Iron Man. Showing off that you don’t need many balloons to make something cool. This Iron man was done by Bruce Bills, you can check out his Flickr gallery for more cool creations.

Balloon Tauren Warrior. I didn’t know what a Tauren Warrior was, but if you play World Of Warcraft you probably know. This impressive sculpture is 6′ tall! Created by Brian Gutz, he talks about it on the mbd2 forum.

Balloon Shire. Jeremy Telford created a whole room to look like the Lord Of The Rings house from the Shire. The Hobbit abode took 3 days and 2600 balloons, that’s dedication! Check out this time-elapsed video.

Balloon Link. Link is looking ready for action. Awesome detail in this, even the triforce on the shield is represented.
