Man creates an incredible balloon sculpture every day for an entire year [21 pictures]

Rob Driscoll describes himself as a magician and photographer from Portsmouth, UK. He doesn’t describe himself as a balloon artist, which is baffling after seeing his creations…

Driscoll thought he probably knew 400-500 unique balloon designs, so on January 1, 2013, he put his skills to the test by posting his first balloon to My Daily Balloon and his Facebook page. For a whole year Driscoll successfully posted a new balloon creation every single day, including a photo and description of each balloon sculpture and occasionally even a video showing the making of the balloon sculpture or a step-by-step tutorial.

Here are just a few of his fantastic creations…

While the end of 2013 brought Driscoll’s daily balloon project to an end, he took just one day off, returning January 2nd with Mickey Mouse and a promise to continue creating his wonderful balloon sculptures…
