Artist Darren Pearson makes “light paintings” of skeletons using a combination of photography and drawing techniques. His stills and gifs are even more impressive when you know that for each frame, he had to “paint” the skeleton freehand in the air in front of him. When this is done with a light source in the dark while a camera’s shutter is open, it creates the illusion of glowing figure. (Hey, even Picasso knew the deal.)

He also has a series of animals, dinosaurs, and aliens (including Kang and Kodos!).
