Matsumoto only uses balloons to make these creations, and says he never uses markers or adhesive. I'm guessing that's because in the world of balloon animal auteurs, glue is essentially plagiarism. Here are some of the coolest creatures from his Tumblr:

This is one of the cutest bags of air I've ever seen.
