I like light-drawn art, and I applaud Darren for showing the botched attempts (you have to mouse-over to see the less-than-great attempts, so it might not work on tablets).

I was just thinking he must need to do so many takes. It's like speed-sketching blindfolded.

Also awesome: Animations.

Unbotched link, found via his page on how light painting works.
