About Bob

I am Bob Armstrong, known professionally as Doctor Bob. I have been in the magnetic balloon world for over 27 long, hard but incredibly rewarding years with some amazing and comical memories! I have a workshop in my retail store, Doctor Bobs Balloons Unlimited, where I design, consultant, and create balloon sculptures for every occasion, whether a family celebration or a big corporate event.

As a renowned balloon artist, I began my balloon-twisting career when working as a train driver and involved with first aid at work back in the early '90s. This is how I earned the nickname 'Doctor Bob' from incorporating balloons into my presentations and quickly fixing them when they popped - effectively, healing them and bringing them back to life

Class Information

The Art of Creating Caricatures

How would you look at a person and interpret a picture of them? Using my years of experience creating balloon caricatures for customers and celebrities, I will provide insight on where to begin on your caricature journey. I will demonstrate how to tackle requests to create a caricature of an individual or a pet, and show how to break the process down to master the art form by using a variety of techniques and all forms of Qualatex® latex balloons. Many principles, once mastered, can be translated from one creation to another.
