Additional Information: 

This button is part of a set that features cartoon images of men's behaviors. There are at least five pins in the series, each depicting a different man. They are "Shy-Guy," "Loudmouth," "Freeloader," "Lush," and "Wolf." Each man's illustrations accentuate their particular title with small details; the "Shy-Guy" has blushing cheeks and keeps his eyes closed. The term "Shy-Guy" in this context refers to a man who is not comfortable around people; he is bashful, coy, and sheepish. Stylistically, the drawings are similar to mid-century cartoons found in adult magazines or illustrations on cocktail napkins.
