Athletes Wrestling by Mitchell

Mitchell - Athlete Restrained

This is an early picture inspired by Tom of Finland's imagery. Wrestling is a good context for portraying the male form and strength. Originally published as part of a set called 'Inspired by Tom' which is available at Mitchell's 'mitchmen' Yahoo Group.

Cops and ...........

Although I'm a Brit I've always preferred the US style of Cop uniform and they feature in many of my pictures and stories.

It seems like boy's stuff, but the shoulder flashes, the epaulettes, the patch pockets, the chunky belt accentuate the physical characteristics of the male body.

Shades add to the image of authority although these, worn by Bryce are a bit offbeat.

Not forgetting boots, handcuffs and a gun. That's quite an armory of memorable masculine icons before you even consider the man inside the uniform.
