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.

Merman

Richie - Merman Dimitrio

Mermen are classic fantasy figures but don't have quite the same alluring niche as their female counterparts. A man trapped within a restrictive body shape within a watery prison seems oddly emasculated. For the artist, the detail of where the man ends and the fish begins is highly problematic, Richie opts for a low slung tail.
