An artist from Bologna who makes "teasing" portraits with a "finger" (dito, obviously someone would say:eek::o;)).
I found it very interesting how he could capture the very few essential traits.
Look herebelow.

Thumbs up!

But why is Ditta Von Tease in with all those fingers? It must be an Italian inside joke or merely a quirky guy who really went to town with this. These are brilliant though. Really rather incredible how they can look so much like the people they're depicting. Bravo. . . and TAKE IT OFF!!!! . . . but I digress. . .

Dear D Akey, Yoor final capital letter "digressive" statement LOL ;) seems to indicate that You don't appreciate Your periodical andrologist's visits, thus that You aren't about to eventually "come out" too. LOL;):o Dito Van Tease is a very original artist from Bologna (here in Italy if anyone doesn't know the town which, historically, was the first place in the world to establish a university) His actual real identity seems to be concealed (I'll ask wikileaks though). As an evidence I would add this little gallery of past and present Italian VIPs You would mostly recognize and their fingerportraits by him ...

In the meanwhile I made a little practice too with finger art and here's what I eventually got! LOL:o;)

Well, all very interesting. I'm not sure that being from Italy you are aware of my reference to Dita VON Tease, not Van. She's a stripper who patterned herself to some extent after Bettie Page. So that was my wondering -- her presence seemed somewhat incongruous like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 83, 7, 8 . . .

But, since you're an intelligent man about town, and since you seem to shun ignorance:

Ladies and gentlemen, straight from her tube to YouTube. . . she walks, she wiggles, she sheds her skin like a reptile. . . In the interest of ART, and international relations, I bring you Miss Dita Von Tease. . .

Dear Gary, I forgot to put an appropriate soundtrack to this illustration, the Pink Floyd for instance, say the wall ... LOL:o:D Thank You!

Thank You, dear D Akey for the burlesque show of DVT! I vaguely knew about her and of the burlesque renewed success. I think the name of the finger-artist may be inspired to her ...:rolleyes:

He's the man of the day on the newspapers then! Thank You, dear Andrea also for the weird effects of comparing faces made of two symmetrical either right or left sides. Impressive. We may do something alike with the symmetry in Artrage ...
