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.

hank you for your interest and support.

The Archer

Kenya Shimizu - Tiger Tattoo

This picture makes an interesting comparison in style with my recent post on Okutsu.
A simple, male warrior figure set against a textured background and using a similar palette. The composition approach is quite different, slightly unbalanced, which gives a more dynamic feeling. Personally I prefer to see the body rather than the tattoo but the picture would be far less striking without it.

Thanks to Adonis Art for the image
