Welcome to the new 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 keep it clean!

Thank you for your interest and support.
Mitchell (Oct 2018).

Beautiful Thing - 2

Francisco Soriano
This image fits in with my recent theme of images propelled by striking colours. In this case there's a bit of a fight going on between the shoulder enhancing, royal blue T-shirt and the lime green trunks but the power of clothing to enhance the male body could not be better illustrated.

However, the most memorable feature of this picture lies not the clothes at all, but in the fact that the model has kept his spectacles on for the shoot - and to tremendous effect, undoubtedly disproving the adage that 'no one makes passes at men who wear glasses'
The result is sort of Clark Kent - Superman moment, although with muscles like this as a starting point I imagine the transformation would be less astonishing than is suggested in the comics.

As in my last post (Jeff Stryker), beauty does not have to conform to crude commercial formulae. Nevertheless I have to give credit to this model and Jockbutt, the sponsors of the picture for a bold gesture that will warm the cockles of spectacle wearers everywhere.

Fifteen minutes of fame for the model
but I suspect this image will be around for many years to come.
