Welcome to the new mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Gay Art.

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.

hank you for your interest and support.

Masculinity


Angel Diabolo (Randy Blue)

Neither angelic nor diabolic, I suspect, but certainly 100% man. This model has worked hard on his upper body and the sweep of his muscular back is a beautiful result. The leather jeans accentuate his narrow waist and add their own dark, (diabolic?), masculine associations into the mix.

Tattoos have always been the hallmark of adventurous males and associated with seafarers in particular, but I'm generally not a fan of large ones like this. In this shot, the panther tattoo cleverly accentuates the shape of the models upper back. Similarly the tribal tattoo on the shoulder adds visual emphasis and bulk to that part of his body but I'm not convinced that it makes it's shape look any better.
