- my Yahoo! Group (where you can see my latest pictures and stories and join my mailing list).


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.

The Elixir

Sotiris Thomaidis beached (click to enlarge)

 This colourful image is a great ad for the bottom enhancing qualities of Modus Vivendi swimwear! The curvy seams shamelessly copy the classic styling of denim jeans but then, no-one ever got bored looking at them! 

The bottle of turquoise liquid, suggestive of idyllic locations, is a constant and mysterious presence in the pictures of this advertising campaign. In this particular image though, the photographer has conjured up a feast of ideas which epitomise the world of advertising - the handsome man reaching out for a prized, precious object, which appears to have been spilled and nearly lost. But these are ideas that have a resonance for our everyday lives too which gives this picture a touch of true art.
