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).

Night Life in the Rain


'Night Life' by Michael Breyette

There are many ways to show off the beauty of the male physique. 

Wet clothes are particularly effective and an almost traditional technique in the realms of non-explicit homoerotica, as my long running series on Royale Studio military images (ca. 1960) at mitchmen blog shows. Those images, largely published in black and white, were barely able to pick the surface. This splendid picture of a man caught in a rainstorm shows why. The wet fabric of his trousers clings to his thighs in the Royale manner, framing but not revealing sensitive, adjacent areas. His thinner shirt, however, becomes translucent in the wet, almost transparent and skin tones and other detail show through. 

Breyette is an old hand at discreet portrayals of manly physiques but the stubbled face he has given this one is right up to the minute. Removing his jacket is an entirely rational response to the drenching he has received but combined with the wet effect it creates the titillating suggestion of a man stripping off in the street.
