Give This Artist a Hand!
Guido Daniele creates awesome hand artwork of animals that pretty much look like the real thing. He lives in Italy and his work has been used in advertising images and commercials.
Originally he was contacted by an advertising agency to create body painting of animals and loved the idea. His paintings usually take around 3-4 hours to create. His son and daughter are often used as the hand models.
In 2007 Guido Daniele won Hero of the Year and was given an award by the Animal Planet network.
He told Readers Digest that the hardest part of his job is watching his creations disappear down the drain after they're photographed. "I'm getting used to it," Daniele shrugs. "At least I get to start each day with a fresh canvas."
These hands have even been used in advertisements:
