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.

Tasty Morsel

 
We all like a cheeky chappie and I certainly have a soft spot for this image.
The tilted cap and underwear perfectly complement the boyish bravado of the pose.
Notice how the underwear, camera and background are colour co-ordinated. The yellow office chair  seems to have had less thought. It produces some meaty thighs, however it seems an odd accessory, one can imagine the boss walking in any minute and finding his project manager with trousers round his ankles.
 
Actually this image is a compendium of modern vanities, the selfie itself of course - the clue is in the name! Plus we have a man who finds himself irresistibly tasty. Finally an example of the self-obsession of the media with a photographer who takes a picture of a man taking a picture of himself. I have to say though, I love the result.
 
I haven't identified the model or the photographer and would welcome illumination from my readers on this.
