Balloon people have their own characters

Set of kids and funny nature with balloon heads. This idea began to form when I was making sculptures from real balloons in the '90s. I got a real feel for the balloons and loved picture their round shapes. The kids also have enemies called Poppers. In fact something spiky or sharp spells trouble if you've got a balloon head!

Think of the supernatural properties of the balloons: morphing, flying, twisting, expanding bursting and floating. The balloon represents the thoughts of a person which can carry them away to fantastic places.
