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 adventurous work via my regular 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 (Jun 2020).

Quarantined

Alessio Slominsky - Quarantined

As the title suggests, this image looks back to the year 2020 when Covid changed lives across the globe. Slominsky has found a gay, romantic angle on the boredom of quarantine isolation, showing a man being serenaded by his neighbour across the street. The singer shows his unrequited love by his song, no doubt, but the fact that he's wearing nothing more than his guitar says more.

The scanty dress of both men might also be attributable to the weather, because this is Catalonia in Spain. The flag draped over the adjacent balcony is the symbol of the independence movement there. Balconies are very significant in Spain, traditionally used to protest. The yellow ribbon on the balcony above the singer is the symbol adopted by Catalans to express support for the politicians who were prosecuted by the Spanish government (also in 2020) for conducting an 'illegal' referendum on the proposal. Quarantine for them meant prison.

A New Year brings new hope for less turmoil and suffering in the world.

His first gay erotic comic "Fetuccini Carbonara" is part of a series of stories called "Alessio in Wonderland". It depicts the adventures of Alessio, a guy who keeps changing jobs regularly, meeting new people and living life to the fullest.

Have you read any of his work?
