I've started a balloon challenge for myself.http://365daysofballoons.blogspot.com/
I'm going to attempt to post a new picture of a balloon design every day for a year.
The idea is that around day 200 or so I'll have to start redesigning old shapes and coming up with brand new stuff.
Hopefully it will help to improve my work as a whole.
I'm also posting my instructional videos there.
I've already got over 20 videos that can be viewed on
iTunes: Search for "balloonatic" in your podcast search bar
Blip.tv: Here is the most recent video, you can view the rest from the bar on the side. http://balloons.blip.tv/file/4558831/
and other sites.
