This is my gateway site. I only post occasionally here but in the sidebar you can connect to my two main posting sites
- my blog (where I show some of my pictures and pay tribute to artists and images that excite me)
- 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.

hank you for your interest and support.

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'
