So let's say that you were to start a website or an ad campaign similar to AoM, devoted to the ideas of "manliness" and being "manly." What image would you pick to best describe that concept? I like the approach that AoM takes with the classic, mustacheo'd look - but what else would work? It doesn't even have to be a picture of a man, right? Perhaps something related to the outdoors, tools, cars, etc. What do you think best defines it in one image? Curious about what people think of this.

Yep, my pic.

But it's a picture of a dog and a little baby.

But the dog's head was as big as he was and that was his dog.

Nice one, Rick.

There can't be a single picture because manliness and manhood has many facets. It would be impossible to portray all of them in a single image. 

Nuts!

I wanted a poster of you for my mancave.

Legions?

 

Bieber...is that you?

True. But you could conceptualize it with something that also has many facets. I don't know - maybe a swiss army knife?

A mirror.

This is harder work than I imagined, so I'll stop.  But it's a great question.

I posted the dog shot in a manly art discussion, so you are on the right track.

One of the big challenges with any design project is coming up with objects (logos, illustrations, photos, icons, etc.), and how to treat or stylize those objects in a way that communicates what you want to say. So make a list of some specifics about what qualities, ideas, etc. that you think define manliness, or that you think people associate with manliness. Then use that list to come up with objects and/or treatments that communicate the items on the list.
