Comic book covers are an amazing artform. They can be done in so many styles. Sometimes they are paintings, other times they are finely-detailed color pen and ink panels, but one thing I have never seen on a comic cover are balloon sculptures. Until now.
These comic cover recreations by balloon artist Phileas Flash are so awesome. Each of the sculptures fit in a 10 foot by 10-foot space and take Phileas many days to make. First he finishes the main sculpture, then uses Photoshop to add in the lettering, which are made from un-inflated balloons with wire inside.
These are great. I hope that DC or Marvel honors this guy by recruiting him for some actual covers in the future. Amazing work, Phileas.
