Finger Provides the Perfect Canvas for a Portrait

When people think of finger art, it usually brings back memories of preschool and washable paint but an Italian artist known simply by the moniker Dito Von Tease puts a new meaning to the term with his ongoing series Ditology. Using his index finger as the primary canvas for his imagination and relying on digital manipulation to take care of everything else, Von Tease captures characteristic features perfectly for a discernibly recognizable face. The impressive depictions take on historical figures from Frida Kahlo and Steve Jobs to more lighthearted pop culture icons like Mr. T and Spock.
