I was always afraid of balloon animals, now I know why!

Check out these unreal balloon sculptures created by Jason Hackenwerth and written up in the Mail Online.

The sculptures take up to three days to construct, and the artist orders up to 5000 balloons at a time.

Design Boom did a great article on Jason Hackenwerth last year as well…
