This is a very new feature at The Land of Hands that I want to develop as much as I can, as I meet more people whose hands I like. The idea is that people always take their photo next to their idols or people they look up to, should they be so lucky as to meet them – I want to do the same thing with hands. I call it hand fan photos.

In December I met three of the members of the band MGMT, when they did a show in Copenhagen. They were very kind to me and liked the drawing I had made for them, also they agreed to do a hand fan photo with me, even though it was a very cold day and not very pleasant to take off your mittens. Andrew VanWyngarden, the lead singer of MGMT, is on My Top 10 Favorite Hands of Guitarists – list, that can be found in the Top 10 section above, should it have an interest.

An anonymous reader of my previous blog asked me about my own hands some time ago. It’s funny how little time I use on my own hands, considering how obsessed I am about those particular body parts on other people. But like most people I’m not very conscious of my hands, and that is exactly why hands are so interesting to me. I can never look at my own hands like I can look at others’, because whenever I am looking at them, they become very aware that someone is looking.
I did a drawing of my left hand today, as I thought there should be some image of my hands here at the Land of Hands.
