This is my gateway site. I only post occasionally here but in the sidebar you can connect to my two main 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 a link in the sidebar here to a small gallery of vanilla drawings by me (Mitchell) (gallery last updated Feb 2018).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

Beach Bums by Mitchell

Mitchell - Beach Bums

This simple study of two men posing in their beach gear is a bit of a personal favourite. It's more simply drawn than some of my pictures and I thought the faces came out well. As you can see it was used in my S&M Clinic story, an ambitious project from 2008 which petered out halfway through, mostly because the story developed uncontrollably.

I have been actively considering returning to this series recently, the Clinic theme was always intended a loose framework for showcasing the possibilities of various medical procedures and there is plenty of material for additional departments. The real challenge is the unfinished storyline which I want to sort out at some point. Having tried my hand at a couple of complex stories I have developed great respect for writers of real literature who produce great epics fleshed out with interesting characters and evocative descriptions.
