Welcome to mitchmen gateway

Welcome to mitchmen.com, home of Mitchell's Gay Art.

This is my permanent gateway site.
I usually post here once a month, art and photos in praise of male beauty, strictly vanilla.
There's a link in the sidebar to a small public gallery of vanilla drawings by me (gallery last updated Feb 2019).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

You can find my more intense and frank work via my regular 'mitchmen' blog
(where I show my own pictures mixed with articles on other gay artists and images that excite me).

There's a 'Gallery Hub' tab at that blog which has onward links to:-
- All the official mitchmen galleries,
- The mitchmen mailing list (for the latest pictures and stories)
- The permanent mitchmen archive at Adonis Male.

I welcome comments from visitors but please avoid adult references,
I can't approve remarks which are not consistent with the vanilla format of this site
and unfortunately I can't edit your contributions!

Thank you for your interest and support.
Mitchell (Jan 2024).

Jogger

running time
'Running Time' by Pickedapeck

 Men dressing and undressing, moving from one persona to another, make great subjects.

Pickedapeck's style is very original and modern. Lean and cartoon-y on the surface, it has a wealth of subtle detail that give his pictures and characters life (like sitting the jogger on the stairs to put his running shoes on). He leads them though a mixture of activities, both mundane and surprising that fascinate and build up into a picture of a life that has been led.

Dark Angel

Black Angel by 'Males Been'

 Angels pop up regularly in gay art, usually as the personification of purity, ripe for to be corrupted and thence moved into the 'fallen' category. This dark angel seems neither pure nor wicked. Instead he expresses an intensity of purpose which he is determined to share. In the art of Males Been black is the colour of liberated sexuality.

Speedo Heaven

Breyette - Alan in Swimming Trunks

 There's something special about swimming trunks, the cut, the texture...
Breyette has cleverly captured it in this picture.
The water stream cascading in the background is, ahem, 'skillfully' positioned. 

See Life Saver for more nice speedos

Swimming pool steps also seem to capture the imagination of beefcake photographers. This artist has mirrored the sweeping curves of these modern hand rails in the arched shaping of the swimmer's body. It's almost as if they have life and are wrestling with him.

Compare that effect with this watery image by Breyette (from mitchmen blog)

Do You Want To?


 
Adam Bryant looks suspicious about getting onto this giant bed.
It is broad daylight after all and he only met the photographer an hour ago.
He doesn't look the sort to be messed with.

Up For Sale

Shanghaied Sailor by Royale

 A slave auction as seen by Royale Studio in 1960 and re-interpreted by AI.

It's part of their adventure story called 'Shanghaied Sailor' that gives a novel answer the age old poser - What Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor? Unexpectedly it's set not in Old Marrakesh nor anywhere else in the Arab world but in the West Indies, providing a remarkable reversal of stereotyping.

Black Beauty

Adonisio - Stunning Nigerian

Who said pouches were old fashioned?
Who said G-strings were for women?
This guy proves otherwise. 
 
He looks as if he's just beamed down in the Tardis
 and is apprehensive about his reception. 
I don't think he's got too much to worry about!

Shall I?


 It's the time of year to consider making resolutions to improve oneself.
Hunky Quinton Wynn doesn't look as if he's been doing much wrong to me.
 
Perhaps he's thinking that he ought to be less eager to take off his clothes for strange men.
Or maybe he's worked out that his chest shave is overdue.
Or perhaps he's thinking that his party outfit over the festive season was a mistake....
