Danny Shervin is an artist known for the work on his YouTube channel, Paint With Gunpowder. It's exactly what it sounds like! He lays down artful arrangements of gunpowder on paper, lights it on fire, and lets the gunpowder burn the image of his illustration into the page. This particular video shows Mr. Shervin illustrating a piece entitled Marco Polo.
It's pretty impressive, if we do say so!
