In childhood, a balloon filled with gas was a highlight at town festivals and was taken home as souvenir where it went up to the ceiling and stuck there for a day before it started to shrink and lost height.
As a teenager, the gas was inhaled and the funniest part was the sound of the voices, similar to Donald Duck. And the exciting part was always, that nobody knew whether it was harmless to health or not. It could be similar to strabismus, where the position of the eyes stands still and cannot be changed again. So in the end it was not clear if someone of the inhalers will speak like Donald Duck forever..!
However… a balloon is a positive symbol that is associated with a beautiful event. My balloon girl has a dressy look, full of detailed patterns, wears a headband and sunglasses. She is happy and proud holding this balloon full of love in her hands.
She is the eighth girl I’ve drawn, finished on the 05th April in 2013. The proportions have been already on point, even if this girl has been one of the first in the girls family.
…of course, siblings usually go separate ways in the course of a lifetime. But the feeling of connection is always there and noticeably different from other connections. I’m sure that even siblings who are at odds with each other cannot forget each other and start thinking about each other from now on.
Best is when siblings are not only siblings but also very best friends and their connection lasts all their life. They are always there for each other, in good and bad times.
girl “bookworm”. Everybody can remember stories that were read to him as a child or that you saw as a movie and that kept you busy for a long time.

girl “holding tight”. If you associate it with physical exertion and seem limited in time. But also with willpower and determination. You can’t only hold on to your hands but also to memories, dreams and goals. You probably let go too often. And gives up or forgets. Where it might be really worthwhile to invest one’s strength down to the last one in order to move/achieve something. To initiate a change that aligns the course for one’s own future in a new or different way.
girl “house of cards”. Sometimes you put in a lot of effort and invest a lot to build something up and yet at some point it breaks or stops. Nothing is infinite. Often something new follows, is a chance, or even gets bigger and better than what you have experienced before.

girl “stop human stupidity”. While in shops peeled eggs are sold packed in plastic, we drive with the dog by car out of the village to go for a walk and pack the dog’s shit in plastic bags, which are then left lying by the wayside or thrown into bushes. While our country earns its living from arms exports, we are saddened that there are so many wars going on in the world. There are countless examples and reasons to demonstrate against the stupidity of humanity.
