I sit in a chair and read the newspapers.

Millions of men go to war, acres of them are buried, guns and ships broken, cities burned, villages sent up in smoke, and children where cows are killed off amid hoarse barbecues vanish like finger-rings of smoke in a north wind.

I sit in a chair and read the newspapers.

It’s been over a year since we last caught up with the work of Milan-based artist Guido Daniele (previously featured here), who comes airbrushed body painting and photography to transform his models’ hands and arms into beautiful and impressively lifelike animals of all sorts. Daniele calls them Handimals and they can be so convincing that it sometimes takes a moment to find the human hands inside the animal.

Visit Guido Daniele’s website to check out many more of his marvelous Handimals.

South African artist Jono Dry creates awesome large-scale pencil drawings, many of which are a beautiful blend of photorealistic style and surrealistic subject matter. A completely self-taught and very meticulous artist, Jono sometimes spends months on a single piece in order to achieve such an astonishing level of detail.

The top image is a wonderful tribute to M. C. Escher’s famous 1948 lithograph Drawing Hands. Entitled Creation, Jono modeled the hands after one of his mother’s hands and one of his own.

Visit Jono Dry’s website to check out more of his amazing artwork.
