Terry Cook has brought the art of making balloon animals to a whole new level. Cook is actually an experienced artist so it’s no wonder that he’s turned this fun art form into something a bit more serious.
His sculptures are incredibly realistic and he’s now skilled in making many different types of birds. How did it all start? As you may suspect, it involved a kid who needed something to play with. Cook’s niece surely had fun with the balloon animals, but so did he, so he decided to turn this into a hobby.
Check out some of his work below. The second post contains multiple images, so make sure to use the arrow to see them all!
A balloon animal series I'm working on. I've gave myself a nervous condition listening to them burst all the time. I want to try and do a few more (all British birds and animals). I use qualatex balloons and they claim the natural latex they use degrades as quickly as an oak leaf (although I since found out oak leaves can take four years to break down!) I would never EVER leave a balloon outside anyway. And I've kept all the spent ones until I figure out how to get rid of them properly. Anyway, ten points if you can tell me what each is meant to be. #balloonanimals #britishbirds #britishwildlife #pondlife #art #animals #pictureoftheday #birds #photography #animals #balloonart #balloons #magic #toomanyhobbies
