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).

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.

The Making of a Man

This blog is dedicated to male beauty and Aaron Cal is a worthy representative.

He reminds us that hard work is needed to make the most of what nature gifted to us.

I'd follow a man like this anywhere!

Summer in the City

Reyes MA - New Yorker (Up On A Roof)
This image with it's acid-bright colours seems to speak of Summer, long and hot
the swirly sky reads like an invocation of heatwave conditions,
the subject's shiny face and clinging, summery attire likewise.

The leaves on the ground though are a augury of Autumn
 and thoughts of the future seems to be reflected in his serious expression
and that typically masculine, crouching pose, denoting a pause in activity.

The man portrayed here is strikingly muscular, his arms and neck convey that, 
even without the curious, explicit outlines showing through his T-shirt.
These seem to be another signifier of the summer heat 
supplementing the fleshy tones which also show through the material
at places where it stretches across perspiring, mounded muscle. 

Seemingly sketchy and naive at first sight, there's some clever observation here

I can't find a website for Miguel Angel Reyes
 but you'll find lots about him and sample images if you search on-line
There's a selection at the Homoerotic Art Museum
