18th Nov

The BalloonTube post a day is still going strong, today was tutorial number 18 the one balloon machine gun. There are 4/5 people joining along so if you wanted to challenge yourself then please post onto my facebook page. Graham Lee Facebook.

I had a gig at the weekend which was nice as things seem to be a little quiet gig wise just lately.

I went down to Chichester on Thursday night to listen to Rob Driscoll giving a talk about his life in latex. I enjoyed the talk and it was interesting to see the reaction from Joe Public to even the most basic design even before Rob showed the more complex designs and talked about his projects over the years. We then went out for a meal after so made it a nice evening altogether. Rob has posted a few pictures onto balloon chat. Balloon Talk.

Olivia is coming up this week so we can go over her new act that she will be presenting for the first time at the Twist and Shout balloon convention in Chicago. If anyone would like to attend then more details are here, Twist & Shout.

David Crofts and I are off to the Florida jam in January, we booked flights and registered this week so all systems are go. More info on this convention can be found here, Florida Jam.

The competition to win a registration ticket for the Blackpool Balloon Bash has a week to run. Still plenty of time to enter, please post entries onto my business page, Balloon Art Wholesale.

Then next Tue & Wed we have the next instalments of the Care & Share days with a comedic workshop on the Tue being run by Donimo the silent clown and then on the Wed Doctor Bob and Colin Myles will be running a Qualates Q-jam day. For more info and to book, Balloon Days.

Off to find the random balloon picture of the week to post.
I went with the tutorial on day sixteen from BalloonTube,
the one balloon horse/pony with the added jumping fence.
