sometimes when you get a balloon animal, your imagination has to fill in a few of the missing details. oddly over-proportioned and abnormally inflated forms could leave you wondering whether you’re holding a dog or a dinosaur.


for her digital series ‘balloon zoo’, los angeles-based artist sarah deremer has realized a realistic rendition of childhood-favorite inflatables. hybrid creatures bear a strangely lifelike appearance, where characteristics like skin, fur and eyes wrap around the balloon’s exaggerated, twisted forms. take a look below at the full species of cross-bred balloon creatures.
