We love to create. It's what we do. We love it so much that we would do it for free, but lets face it- creating joy and goodwill unfortunately does not pay electric bills, or grow businesses. (Dang it!) We're not the first artists to face this, nor are we the only ones. Thankfully Patreon is making it easier for you to support the artists who create work for you to enjoy. When you sponsor us for as little as $2/month, you and other backers will create a steady stream of income to support our creative projects. And sponsoring us for a bit more will unlock Patreon-only benefits...

What we're really good at


We create jaw-dropping installations and sculptures of all sizes using latex balloons. Installations can be in galleries, trade shows, or be their own major events. Balloons are also a unique medium for dimensional illustration. Our award-winning images have been used in advertising, editorial pieces and books around the world. Some of our most popular work is frequently copied, redistributed, and shown off on the web. We love the attention. We want to do more of that work to share with the public. 


We can use your help

Larry actually got his professional start in the arts as a NYC street performer where people tipped for the performances that they enjoyed. Fans would come out to Central Park looking for him to see what he was going to do next. And those returning fans would tip him every time. They were more than fans. They were patrons, supporting his efforts to improve his skills and entertain audiences. This is what Patreon is all about.

Goals
$0 of $100 per month
MEETING THIS GOAL MEANS: We get to create a new image for the Masterworks Series! Everyone seems to smile or laugh at the frivolity of the masters being recreated with balloons. We are often encouraged to create more of these works, but we find ourselves focusing more on installations or private commissions that generate immediate income. When we reach this goal from our fans, we can dedicate time to create another masterwork image to share online and add to our gallery or famous works. Active patrons will get the chance to vote on the masterpiece to reimagine!
