Normally, balloon art is reserved for little kid’s birthday parties but one college student by the name of Joel Zae decided to take balloon art to the next level by creating this life-sized balloon version of Miami Heat star LeBron James.
Zae, an accounting major at Brigham Young University took time out of a Saturday in June to create his first life-sized balloon masterpiece.
The piece took about six hours to complete and shows the balloon version of James ready to slam home a dunk:
When asked about future balloon sculpture plans, Zae wanted to tackle the world of Star Wars:
“I plan on doing some more cool sculptures, I have a brother who also does balloons, so we plan on teaming up and doing a Star Wars sculpture, maybe a Batman one, all sorts of fun stuff.”
We just pray the Jar-Jar Binks balloon doesn’t get created.
