Rocco Malatesta has released a collection of celebrity hand portraits. Currently based in Germany, the graphic artist has done an excellent job of immortalizing the likes of Michael Jordan, Jesus and the fictional character ET. The red, pink and purple hues displayed in the small affiches echo the accomplishments of icons followed by Malatesta, many of whom carved out their names by way of their hands.

The Lance Armstrong design showcases the athlete's digits clad in Nike gloves. The choice of a peace sign here is touching, reminiscent of his highly revered journey and experience with cancer. The millions who support such stars will find solace in Malatesta’s work, sure to decorate the homes of sports, music and film enthusiasts.
