Welcome to the new mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Art.

I only post occasionally here but in the sidebar you can connect to my two principal sites - my blog (where I talk about my work and pay tribute to artists who excite me) and my Yahoo! Group (where you can join my mailing list, read my stories and see my latest pictures).


There's also a link to a small gallery of my work here (last updated Aug 2016).
If you have problems with the link read this notice.


T
hank you for your interest and support.

A new artist

Verlato - Enduring Freedom

I stumbled across this artist recently, new to me. I enjoy these depictions of soldiers, the tension of the bodies and drama in the poses is striking. Much of this artist's work is rather more surreal than this and you can see Dali in the sensual texturing of the bodies and the floating poses.

My next story at the Yahoo group has a military theme too. Should start soon.

Workmen and builders

I came across this picture about a year ago and it really grabbed me. There's some fakery going on but I find the face and neck line exceedingly interesting. Builders and workmen are one of my long time fascinations (along with Rugby Players, Sailors etc etc... ..). A classic 'mitchmen' image! When I was a teenager I spent a summer studying chaps like this on a building site near my home. They feature heroically in my Press Gang story (posted at the Yahoo Group).
I can't remember where I found this image but if the owner gets in touch I'll give a credit.

mitchmen A-Z resumes at blogger

I have posted the new installment of the A-Z at the blog, the next artist calls himself moc.


moc - Tight Shift - Caught


This is the first panel in a series called 'Tight Shift'. You can probably work out what happens to the unfortunate guards from the rope and handcuffs. moc has a nice clean style, I particularly like the faces. My full review with more illustrations is at the blog.

For my first post I'm going to be uncontroversial but still sexy I hope!
