Welcome to mitchmen blog

Welcome to mitchmen, home of Mitchell's Gay Art.
(with no connection to Michael Mitchell!)

This is my gateway site. I only post occasionally here, usually pictures in praise of male beauty, strictly vanilla,
but in the sidebar you can connect to my two more adventurous 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 also a link in the sidebar here to a small gallery of vanilla drawings by me (Mitchell) (gallery last updated Feb 2019).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

I welcome comments from visitors but please avoid adult references, I can't approve remarks which are not consistent with the vanilla content of this site!

Thank you for your interest and support.
Mitchell (July 2019).

Summer in the City

Reyes MA - New Yorker (Up On A Roof)
This image with it's acid-bright colours seems to speak of Summer, long and hot
the swirly sky reads like an invocation of heatwave conditions,
the subject's shiny face and clinging, summery attire likewise.

The leaves on the ground though are a augury of Autumn
 and thoughts of the future seems to be reflected in his serious expression
and that typically masculine, crouching pose, denoting a pause in activity.

The man portrayed here is strikingly muscular, his arms and neck convey that, 
even without the curious, explicit outlines showing through his T-shirt.
These seem to be another signifier of the summer heat 
supplementing the fleshy tones which also show through the material
at places where it stretches across perspiring, mounded muscle. 

Seemingly sketchy and naive at first sight, there's some clever observation here

I can't find a website for Miguel Angel Reyes
 but you'll find lots about him and sample images if you search on-line
There's a selection at the Homoerotic Art Museum
