For those of you waking up to enjoy Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, keep you eyes out for a balloon from director, artist, illustrator, photographer, and writer Tim Burton, whose retrospective exhibition recently showed at the LACMA. Last year, it was Takashi Murakami who grabbed the attention of art-loving parade-goers, this year it will be this B. Boy inflatable made from (according to the cover story created by Burton) the leftover balloons used in children’s parties at the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, Frankenstein’s monster-style. Happy Thanksgiving!
