Whose hands do you admire, this may seem weird, but I have always been facinated by the hand. I've heard that even Dai Vernon had a photo of Dr. Elliot's hands in his wallet.
When I was twelve, I read John Scarnes books and loved the pictures of his hands holding a deck of cards in various positions.
Then when I got a hold of Dai Vernons books I modelled by hands to his in his photos, I always thought that he had the most natural looking hands.
I've watched a lot of magicians, and quite a few move there hands quite unnaturally, they flare their fingers too much, too much movement.
David Williamson, now there's a pair of hands, he makes everything look so easy.
