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.

Men before Machines

Mercury
Mercury is a classic subject for male anatomy studies and this colourful portrayal of him, striding across the sky, is highly traditional too, affording a modest portrayal of the naked body. For some reason, the well developed upper thighs and chiseled, strong looking face made me think of him as a Rugby player. Quite apposite with the World Cup upon us again. I'm not sure this very modern-looking man would think his helmet terribly flattering, hats can be a minefield, as I'm sure Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie will attest!

Men and Machines

What is it about men and motorbikes?
The attraction of power? A love affair? Or just companionship.
This picture by Michael Downs covers all the bases.
