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).

Military Men by Carr

Henry Marvell Carr - Sgt Montague one of the Desert Rats

 Two portraits of military men from a British artist I hadn't known about before.

They capture the masculine charm of soldiers and sailors rather well. 

Henry Marvell Carr - An Ordinary Telegraphist

These images came from Uniformes et Stereotypes blog which is a fantastic resource of retro imagery regarding all branches of the military and also discussions of the work and inspirations of some important, vintage gay artists.


These images also complement the ongoing series at mitchmen blog featuring the imagery of the vintage, British 'Royale Studio' from the 1950/60's. Royale Studio was founded by Basil Clavering as beefcake photographic studio, but they also produced 'storyettes', which were photo series which often featured military scenarios of sailors and soldiers getting into tight clothes and mischief. The actors were often, reputedly, serving members of the British armed forces. As an adjunct to that series I am publishing, bit by bit, my entire collection of Royale images collected from the internet over the years to form an open archive. Two more 'new' Royale images turned up this week in my browsing.
