Like many of the designs in this gallery, the London Underground map (below) was an out of the blue request and was made spontaneously.

We had no to an actual tube map for reference, consequently no responsibility can be taken for accuracy and the image should not be relied on for journey planning.

Not to forget the traditional, classic, basic animals...

These were probably the first type of balloon animals to be made by cavemen, using natural materials,

although they probably didn't have the little stickers for the eyes back then

When samples of rubber first arrived in England, it was observed that a piece of the material was extremely good for rubbing out pencil marks on paper, hence the name rubber.

Later, balloons were made from the rubber and a few years later still, the models in this gallery were designed and created.
