- 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).

Merman Sven

Merman Sven by Silverjow
Merman Dimitrio by Richie is one of my most visited posts here. His visualisation of the species suggests a new, genetically unique creature with the transition from human top to fishy bottom cleverly graduated and integrated. Silverjow's fantasy seems more practical in concept with a distinctly human torso (of enviable quality) seemingly shoehorned into an exotic fishlike tail section. The texturing and shape of the fishy skin is somewhat reminiscent of the unconvincing costumes used in Mermaid movies and you almost feel Sven could simply beach himself, unzip, peel off his tail and walk away if he so desired. But if his combination of species lacks biological conviction it's still a handsome and striking image which cleverly skirts the issue of the reproductive barrier that is normally deemed to separate humans and 'Mer-creatures'

Bee still my beating heart

Aaron Kuttler for Aronik
The generous proportions of the pink swimsuit Aaron Kuttler wears here as he wades into the sea seem distinctly retro, reminiscent of the days when modesty was the rule for beach attire, but they would have been thought very daring back then and you can see why. The unconventional, bright colour draws the eye to his shapely bottom and the striking pattern shows off it's shape, indeed it seems to enhance it. Aaron looks round as though he can feel the eyes of fellow beach boys upon it. The honeycomb pattern links with Aronik's use of a Bee for it's logo but it's also the shape of chicken wire which conjures up a rather different fantasy.

Mysterious Face

Michael Egan by Michael Stokes

Sunglasses can have a mysterious beautifying effect on some faces,
highlighting lips and jawline.
