An artist has wowed his fans after sharing a series of foot-drawn portraits of celebrities, with some remarking that he can draw better with his feet than most people can with their hands.

René Vignola decided to try a different technique during lockdown and stumbled across an unusual hidden talent for foot-drawing, which he refers to as ‘PataDibujos’ (Spanish for ‘paw drawings’).

In a series of mesmerising videos shared via TikTok, the 21-year-old can be seen gripping the pen expertly between his big and second toe, before drawing a variety of famous faces.

Subjects have previously included Glastonbury headliner Billie Eilish to rapper Kanye West, as well as actor Will Smith and pop star Ariana Grande.

René, who lives in Puebla City, Mexico, said: “I have always been interested in everything related to art. I discovered this new skill in search of getting out of the conventional. I decided to try a new artistic challenge for myself.

“I started with cartoon drawings but, with my increasing progress, I decided to raise the level of difficulty by making portraits of celebrities, and after uploading the videos to TikTok I received great support from the public.”

His Kanye portrait has proven to be a particular favourite among fans, and the video has since clocked up more than 4.8 million views.

One person admitted “bro can draw better than me with his toes than I can with my hands”, while another said they’d been “inspired” to try it for themselves.

Many were amazed by his ability to grip the pen so firmly, with a third impressed individual commenting, “you have such a good grip.”

However, others weren’t quite so sure what to think about his toes touching the pens, shuddering, “Don’t ever lend me your pencils and pens.”

René continued: “I am an empirical artist. I not only make art with my feet, I also use my hands and with them, I make drawings, paintings, sculptures, and crafts.

“I am studying international trade, but this does not stop me from doing this hobby that has been with me for as long as I can remember.”
