Holy moly. These must be massive. That mayfly looks like it'd be three feet long just from the nose to butt.

Don't miss the lily of the valley. And the caterpillar. And the weird eyeball-flower. And the girl in the ice cream sundae. Or maybe she is the ice cream sundae. It was hard to tell.

These are insanely great. Wish there were some sort of reference for how big they are. Big or small, just knowing would make it more impressive I think.

Although these are awesome, it's making me hear that horrible balloon-twisting sound. SKREERP!

The more organic ones were a bit ... Uncanny valley ? i liked the more whimsical ones, especially the Audrey II.

I have twisted up a few balloon dogs and dragonflies, but I am having trouble imagining how these would go together! And how do you do those arrays of tiny balls like in the bird wings?! Crazy!!

I love the jellyfish ones, but it was the lily of the valley one that totally won me over.
Thanks for sharing!

Cute! The kind of creative energy you must have to figure out how to make practically anything from balloons is just beyond my comprehension. I also could not work in a medium where those weird rubby squeaky twisty noises are a good sign, because it's better than the sound of your material exploding into fragments in your hands.
