Bertie was made with Colin Myles when we went to Ireland two years back. Colin's website, 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

A few bikes I have made over the years, the push bike Thelma asked me to make from her PDF instructions to check them out.
If anyone would like to make this then get in touch with Thelma as I'm sure she could do with a few pennies  :)

Some bikes, the motor bikes were made just a couple of weeks back. The push bike I would think I made at least three years ago at a guess.

The push bikes were made for a TV show in the UK, never mind the buzzcocks.

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.

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

I made a few variations on the TV Burp image for a photo shoot. Harry was nice and friendly and sat down and chatted for a while.
