Hand-some beast!

Guido Daniele is an italian born artist with a panache for painting animals on hands; otherwise known as ‘Handimals’. I want to take a moment to consider the model that sits perfectly still for up to 10 hours at a time while Guido brings forth the beast in the hand. When the model goes off to work that morning does he/she bid the household good-bye with a ‘I’m off to my handjob’… Honestly, though Guido’s handiwork is hands down brilliant… even if at times his ideas can be a handful. OK, I’M STOPPING… BENT and BRILLIANT!

  14. This is so cool! I would be the one who leaves it on there forever, and then people wouldn’t even know what it was after a while, but it was my hand’s only claim to fame so I’d never want to wash it. I would make it be like a puppet and it would be the only way I would talk to people. Or I would hide under tables at coffee shops and just lay my hand on the table…And eventually, I’d end up on intervention…

    • wow, you’ve really given this some thought… now repeat after me “I-will-not-ever-get-my-hand-painted” fame will have to come in another form, perhaps one of those human statues that buskers for money. Just keep away from coffee shops. Keep on, keeping on…
