Weekend Diversion: a new twist on the art of balloon animals (Synopsis)

“Laughs don’t come in barrels. They come from inside you as your body’s response to delight.” -Pinkie Pie

Every once in a while, a constraint is placed on an artist, musician or creator that results in something more powerful than you would have ever found otherwise. Have a listen to Keller Williams' wonderful song,

Artist Masayoshi Matsumoto has begun creating balloon creatures -- animals, plants, even humans and fantasy forms -- out of balloons only, with no adhesives, markers, clips, tape, or anything else. Balloons only. And what he's managed to create is simply delightful.
