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.
