Title: My Balloon Art
Post by: Graham Lee on October 07, 2013, 11:12:45 AM
Having sorted out over half my picture albums I thought I would start to post them onto the forum under one thread. I think the majority will have been posted onto the forum at some time but many may have missed them or not been members when I originally posted. I have just set up a twitter account as well, my tag is myballoonart so if anyone would like to follow me then please do.

Where I'm inflating the White 260 this was taken at Guildford University where they had a fun day with Johnny Ball and the robot I think called Titus.
Me in the big balloon with head out, someone made this picture up for me from an original when I played the magic club meal for the magic club in the Midlands,
the name escapes me at the moment. I was on the bill with Alec Powell and Jason Steele and Joanne I believe.
Where I'm fully inside the balloon this was taken at Blackpool magic convention, one of my very first lectures.

Graham, I love the "inside the big balloon" but it scares me when I see someone totally inside it.  I know there is lots of air in there but do you carry a pin or sharp object just in case?

Yes you should always be prepared for any situation, I have scissors with me.

I nearly mentioned this when Millie said about it looking/being dangerous. It is dangerous and generally I offer no advice, for safety reasons and to protect ourselves. Some people have panic attacks attempting to climb inside and I did post one on the forum about this if you do a search. On the website when buying the balloons there is a warning notice to say these are the climb in balloons but it is dangerous and we suggest you do not climb into them. All the info is out there on the internet or YouTube and Larry Moss has a book out about climbing inside.

These were the first two heads I tried before we got third time lucky with the style and that was by a mistake. This was made for Room 101 and has now been repeated possibly 5/6 times now. Just looking at heads one and two now and both I think would have been OK in hindsight, they have the craggy look  :)  Fingers crossed Alice does not read the forum  :)

The first ape was my variation on Mr Bomas and his Monkey from YouTube.
I think the ape in picture three was taught by Sabina at the British juggling convention when she popped over so that is going back a few years now.
I think Sabina taught this at a few conventions now thinking about it.

The baby was made from a model that Phoenix shared on the forum.
The backdrop was made I think for my second magic convention I attended. The first one was to promote the care & share days and to give away some free Qualatex product that Pioneer kindly provided. This is the IBM magic convention and at a guess would have been 2006.
The dreaded balloon artiste guild logo design, we never did sort this out although I have seen a very similar design on the internet with this now.

The ball was taught in the jam room at the millennium jam, it might be from an idea by Colin Myles, might be?
The ball and spiral I learnt over 10 years ago on a DVD by .... ......, in fact I will not say as it was not the persons design, it was taken from Sean Rooney.
If you have not heard of Sean Rooney then google him, he is an AMAZING artiste

Not sure when the ballerina was made.
Oasis was made for my next door neighbour and I think is a quick and easy way to get the look you are looking for.
The base was made for comic relief, this is the link to view more from that photo shoot, another-photo-shoot-t750.html (http://balloonchat.co.uk/another-photo-shoot-t750.html)

I forgot to make batman have a black nose on one of the designs, oops.

The beaver was made a long while back.
I started off with one head design for Ben 10 and then changed it, I think the second one works better.

Bertie was made with Colin Myles when we went to Ireland two years back. Colin's website, http://www.smileyballoons.com/ (http://www.smileyballoons.com/)
The face was possibly made at the very first care & share day? Memory goes at my age, it was at Bishops Stortford though.
I made an easier two balloon bike the other day, posted it on the Belgium lecture thread, belgium-lecture-t7609.html (http://balloonchat.co.uk/belgium-lecture-t7609.html)

The middle bird was made at Thelma's a few months back and the other two must have been made a few years ago now, I really like the look of the first bird's beak/mouth section.

The one balloon bird/chick which if memory serves me correctly I first saw sitting about in the jam room one year at the millennium jam.
The book was made for one of the games we used to play on the forum, guessing the word association game.

The boxer was made for a magic club friend who was attending a party and the host was a boxing referee.
I made the bride and groom for my Daughters wedding, I got the idea from a design that David Grist did a while back that I think was published in a balloon images magazine. His design involved SDS panels and I think was a cowboy from memory.
Title: Re: Graham Lee, my balloon art
Post by: Graham Lee on October 20, 2013, 10:05:09 AM
At the last millennium jam there was a Spanish gentleman who lectured on the bride's made from a 646 centre column, I think I should go and see if I can find his name as he also explained some lovely jewellery which was very nice and different for the time. There are pictures in the events section for the very last millennium jam if you would like to see. I'm assuming these are my version of his technique but would need to view his class sculptures to be 100% certain. The base on the second picture has some added detail.
The bride and groom were made for a fellow magicians wedding that I attended and entertained the children for an hour with my magic show.
This must have been maybe 10 years ago now  :o

The jewellery pictures start on page 9, the-millennium-jam-2010-t2152-80.html (http://balloonchat.co.uk/the-millennium-jam-2010-t2152-80.html)

Another one balloon cat from a 160 balloon.
Daniel showed the chair at a care & share day in Manchester a few years back. We made the chair at Blackpool magic convention with a beer and a remote for the man who has everything. It did take us a while to persuade people to sit in it, no one thought it would hold their weight.
Title: Re: Graham Lee, my balloon art
Post by: Graham Lee on November 01, 2013, 09:05:27 AM
We did get a few people to try the chair out in Blackpool.
The Chandelier was made for a shop window display to coincide with London fashion week, the colour scheme was just Fuchsia and Orange which was the company's colours.
The Cheetah was made from the CD instructions from Bonnie Davis, any of Bonnie's CD's are well worth a view.

Not sure where or why the first chicken was made, maybe a quicker variation on David's weaved chicken in a basket.
The Chicken basket was made at a Bristol care & share day where David Crofts was the lecturer and all day he did very and I mean very corny jokes about chicken's.........
but it was a very fun day.
The flower pot man, this was in China, we had to do a parade every day to promote the festival so I walked around the city as a flower pot.
The things people do  ;)  :lol:  It was a lot of fun.

The cup was made at a magic convention, they award a prize to the best magic stand so we are never sure if we are considered for this as we sell balloons so we just made our own one,
it made us smile and was a bit of a laugh. The magic organisation is the (IBM) International Brotherhood of Magicians so we thought the International Balloon Makers (IBM) was fun,
well at the time we did. Not sure I'm rolling on the floor laughing now  :)  ;)

I rather like the fish hat for some reason, it only got made 2/3 times, it nearly made it onto my DVD, "Just hats" but got cut the last minute.
I think it looked better when I made it all in Orange but unable to find that picture at the moment. The tail of the fish was made from a shield design.
Funny how when I was making the shield I thought...........Fish tail and went off at a tangent again.

The first picture was made on a holiday I went with Val, Pearse and Lyn. We went on a caravan holiday, Pearse, Val and Lyn went to bingo one night and I made a full size pop up balloon girl and put it in Pearse's bed. I rigged it so that when he pulled the covers back it sat up in bed. It worked a treat but I never took a picture, we were laughing so much. It was a fun holiday, we have spent a few with them and have had a good time.

Now I have to go back and look over the 300 odd pictures to pick a favourite  ;)
I will go and look now, I might have a few though.
Title: Re: My Balloon Art
Post by: Graham Lee on December 29, 2013, 08:33:08 PM
I'm back with so many that I like, there is a bird, Buzz's face, Camel, Giraffe, Dino Head, formula 1 racing car, violin, saxophone, full size bike, basic sausage dog,
dog with dino face, eskimo dog, ducks, feet and hands from the photo shoot for esquire, the flower in balloon, one balloon rose, scissors and alice.
I will have a think and see if I can come up with a short list, off the top of my head, the feet, flower in round balloon and full size bike.

It was a very good question, maybe we could have a thread and everyone could post their favourite balloon model they have made and perhaps say why.

The hat was made for Harry my grandson 6/7 years ago, I took a picture of the inside of the hat, I think it looks a little artistic.
Thelma was making a window display for the jubilee I think so I played around with the face design for the Queen. The finished window is on Thelma's website.

Adding pictures to my portfolio thread, hoping not to duplicate any.
The baby was shown at a care and share day by Rob Driscoll and I was commissioned by Patrick van de Ven to make one of his little guys.
So here are some variations on a theme for Barney, not sure which one is the original.

It is a 350 tulip'ed and split in two, you get both wheels from one 350.

I have been updating my portfolio folder, when I post onto the forum I save the pictures into a separate folder. At the moment I have 28 of them.
I moved over the first 10 folders a couple of years back so have been updating and saving the better sculptures to the one folder.
Up to folder 20 now so have another eight to do, then I have to re-name all the pictures as many were saved as leeds 12, Eastbourne 37, b8 etc etc.
It will keep me busy for a little while.

I added the memory jog as I have been updating my portfolio album and it
took me a while to find this thread on the forum.

I will try to update it a little but not and not double up on too many designs.

I'm onto folder 35 now and all sort of up to date. There were over 2000 pictures in the portfolio,
I have cut that down to 700 now and will try to put onto my ipad and take to the balloon days/events
that I attend so people can view if they would like too.
