There's a link in the sidebar here to a small gallery of vanilla drawings by me (Mitchell) (gallery last updated Feb 2018).
If you have problems with the link please read this notice.

hank you for your interest and support.

Beach Bums by Mitchell

Mitchell - Beach Bums

This simple study of two men posing in their beach gear is a bit of a personal favourite. It's more simply drawn than some of my pictures and I thought the faces came out well. As you can see it was used in my S&M Clinic story, an ambitious project from 2008 which petered out halfway through, mostly because the story developed uncontrollably.

I have been actively considering returning to this series recently, the Clinic theme was always intended a loose framework for showcasing the possibilities of various medical procedures and there is plenty of material for additional departments. The real challenge is the unfinished storyline which I want to sort out at some point. Having tried my hand at a couple of complex stories I have developed great respect for writers of real literature who produce great epics fleshed out with interesting characters and evocative descriptions.
