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).

Merman or Mer-warrior?

Rob Saint - Merman Splash

 This artist approaches the merman as a heroic, god-like figure, able to raise himeself above the water. He almost looks as if he is emerging from the mouth of a fish. The water itself is depicted in an interesting, slightly spiky way as though it is a hostile or alien environment (which it must be for a metal sword surely!). The depiction of the man's physique is also very detailed, but rather bland by comparison. There's a sense of great strength, but not much by way of personality. The vexed question of reproduction is simply ignored with an indecisive mist shrouding the area. An odd column of oval dots running down the body of the fish seems to hint bizarrely at a buttoned-up covering.  I'm irresistably reminded of those dancing fish with Top Hats and waistcoats that cartoonists used to draw.
