Welcome to mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Gay Art.
(with no connection to Michael Mitchell!)

This is my gateway site. I only post occasionally here, usually pictures in praise of male beauty, strictly vanilla,
but in the sidebar you can connect to my two more adventurous posting sites
- my blog (where I show some of my pictures and pay tribute to artists and images that excite me)
- my Yahoo! Group (where you can see my latest pictures and stories and join my mailing list).

There's also a link in the sidebar here to a small gallery of vanilla drawings by me (Mitchell) (gallery last updated Feb 2019).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

I welcome comments from visitors but please avoid adult references, I can't approve remarks which are not consistent with the vanilla content of this site!

Thank you for your interest and support.
Mitchell (July 2019).

Sultry Office Hunk

(model and photographer not identified)
Even if he's fully clothed this is a great picture of the office hunk as you'd like him to be.
The tight-fitting clothing is very 'mitchmen' and would turn many heads.

The open neck reveals little except some attractive chest 'grow-back'
but it seems to create a curious disconnection of the head.
as though it's bursting out of the tightly buttoned up clothing.

The braces make a nice pairing for my 'Pants Dropper' picture for October 2019

The Enigma of Super Strength

Julia Cross - 'Herakles' Avengers Tarot card
A curious take on the Avengers family of superheroes.
Amid the ruins of another beaten villain's empire,
Captain America strips naked to befriend a baby lion.
He's painted as Vulnerable, soft and cuddly, 
but I just wonder, why?
Likewise Herakles (Hercules)?

The allusion to Tarot Cards seems to invoke fateand the workings of destiny
which seems a contradiction for a character so clearly in control of himself.

It's a nice image though. with attractive flesh tones
The technique is also quite interesting, 
The design borrowed from from the early 1900's
predates Captain America, methinks.

Perhaps I'm missing something.

 The other images in the Tarot series of Julia Cross
 are rather less interesting from a mitchmen point of view.

Pick Up Your Bed

Mark Tsarevsky - 'Pick up your bed' by David Vance
David Vance conjures up the impression of a nomad.
Minimal possesions, have bed will travel.
His saucy, sagging pants cock a snook at conventional souls.
Judging by his physique though, he's not destitute
and can still afford his gym fees.

Corner Time

'Bobby' by Richard Laeton
A study of a pensive man with an exceptionally shapely body.
Richard Laeton employs colours freely using exuberant brushwork.
He's caught the man's body highlights and shadowing nicely here.
Not so sure about the background though - is that a fire in the corner?

Another example of clothing flattering a model's body shape.
The V-shape of the braces artfully echoes the natural taper of the torso. 

Their taut line emphasises the undulations of musculature,
detouring around the mounds or jumping across the canyons.
With a slightly naughty point of convergence
But braces are not meant to be in contact with skin.
It's slightly shocking and dissolute combination
Implying undress, yet emphasising decency. 

I don't know the model or photographer yet.

Alex Geerman posing in a T-shirt in a very unconventional way. 
Perhaps it's an ad campaign for chest aftershave,
But it's a striking and unexpectedly sensual image.
I haven't ID'd the photographer yet.

Summer in Paradise

JuiceJ - title unknown

It's that time of year when men undress on beaches.
Not usually quite like this though. 
The high waisted underwear suggests a man of some modesty

I don't know who JuiceJ is, this image looks like it has photgraphic origins.
