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.

Animal Strength

Tom Fritz - “Out Quicker Than A Hiccup”
(click on image to enlarge)
This remarkable image draws on two contrasting strands of masculine nostalgia, the vintage automobile and the romance of simple physical labour on the land. The artist has placed a suitably impressive tough-looking man at the centre of things, his physical attributes play second fiddle to the horses visually but their servitude embellishes his strength . The colour and lighting is as atmospheric and seductive as the subject matter. A celebration of things male. 
You can find more information on this artist at his website www.fritzart.com.
