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.

Thor's Hammer


This is a truly masculine image, stereotypical perhaps but I'm not complaining about that! 
It's a great example of how simple clothing, like the humble T-shirt can showcase the body, 
in this case by demonstrating and emphasising the size of his biceps 
- and far more more effectively than a mere tape measure ever could.

The inexplicable watery downpour highlights the muscular details of his arms 
and has caused the wet T-shirt to produce a terrific sunray pattern around his shoulders.

At the risk of being picky, I might question whether the pile of whatever it is he is hitting (ice perhaps?) is a worthy target, it don't look that solid!

I can't credit the model or the photographer unfortunately, 
if anyone knows who they are please add a comment to the post
