Intriguing Finger Celebrities (Art)

If you’re willing, even your fingers can be transformed into famous people of your choice, and that’s what the Italian artist Dito Von Tease did for his Ditology project. He photographed his own index ‘dito’, (aka finger) and magically manipulates it into public figures like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg with astounding accuracy.

Von Tease, who also goes by the name “Il Dito” (The Finger), started the project three years ago, when he first subscribed to Facebook. He decided to design an avatar using a photo of his own index finger and some digital retouching. He says, “I wanted to be free from my role, my oppressive relatives, and my not-very-friends.” The burlesque performer Dita Von Teese, whom he calls “an expert in disguises,” inspired his alias. He also wanted to explore the idea that we all hide ourselves behind an image we create. Which is your favorite? Please let us know in the comments below.

Dito Avatar. With this level of accuracy and detail, it’s hard to tell if this really comes from a regular index finger. Dito Von Tease is not (just) another photo manipulator.

Dito Mario Bros. I love how vector designs are created to suit this Mario character. The artist truly cares about every single element that adds to the accuracy.
