PHOTOS: Olympic Diver Matthew Mitcham Can Be Bought!

MORNING GOODS: Matthew Mitcham is one of our favorite out athletes at the London Games—not just because he’s sexy as hell, but because he’s taken on the mantle of LGBT activist in addition to his stellar sports career. As we reported earlier, the Olympic diver sat for artist Ross Watson, who placed his likeness  inside renditions of classic works by Caravaggio, Ricci and other masters. (One of Watson’s paintings of Mitcham is on view in Australia’s esteemed National Portrait Gallery.)

Now you can have a piece of Matthew (metaphorically) and help a good cause: From now until the London Games end on August 12, Watson is donating 20% of the sales of this series toward helping finance Mitcham’s Olympic dream. The works, giclee prints on archival torchon paper, are numbered and hand-signed by the artist and range in prince from $660 to $1400. And if you buy one, you’re automatically entered in a raffle to win a piece signed by Mitcham himself.

    Your headline writing technique is so tabloid-cheap that it makes Hipster Runoff look like the New Yorker.

    In paintings or real life, Matthew looks very easy on the eyes. Good luck, Matthew.

    OH MY GOD, Matthew is SO hot! He’s not a celebrity crush, but if there’s anything close, he’s it! His cuteness is only made hotter by his hotness, and his hotness is only made hotter by his cuteness!

    Ok, insane ramble done

    @Belize: You are such a pretentious boor.

  • Derek

    @Edgar: You took the words right out of my mouth – such an affected d0uchebag you are Belize.
