The Logo

You need not utter even a single word. The "Logo" speaks for itself and a life lived. One can only imagine where it has been and what its seen, and the colors and texture can tell a story played out in your mind....

A matted 8"x 12" print on metallic photo paper framed with classic barn wood. It's wired, ready to hang, and enjoy for only, $110 including shipping in the US.

Things That Have Power

Discerning people want things that are hard to find, have power and are different. Things that have romance and mystery, but a factual mystery, about them. When I told the story of my framed image at "Laguna Art-A-Fair" to this young family of Tony and Tanya looking for their first art purchase for their new home, they fell in love with it. It's so captivating, the expression of their little one looking over the frame. Makes my heart sing just looking at it.

One big "Thank You" to all that signed up for my email list at the "Laguna Art-A-Fair" and came by to say hi!

Time for a Shout-Out

Yep, it's time for a big "Shout-Out" to all of you that came to my "Automoblia Monterey" show during car week in Monterey! "Thank You"... and to those of you that found a treasure to take home, an even bigger "Thank You." You guys rock! This was the second year that I did this show in conjunction with doing the show in Laguna Beach at "Laguna Art-A-Fair," quite an undertaking planning for two shows at the same time.

Those that were not in Monterey here is a quick look at my show just before it opened, and don't forget the show at Laguna goes through September 1st. Come check it out!

Somewhere North of Tucson

West or east of almost everywhere else in the southwest desert town, I found this truck rooted outside a bar. It drew me inside like a moth to light to inquire. An old jukebox poured out a lonesome song. that makes you yearn for honest, simple things. Things you can't even name. Well, on the other hand,
maybe the honest patina on the heat vents of my image named, "Survivor."

This is a 16"x 24" gloss print infused onto metal and custom made re-purposed barn wood frame. It's wired, ready to hang, and be enjoyed! It can be yours for $450 including shipping here in the US.

Automobilia Monterey

Monterey back in the day was once a remote artist and fishing town along the coast of California, a home to the likes of John Steinbeck and Ansel Adams. Today, of course, it's the go-to place for auto fanatics during August. I'll be there too, with my fine art photography at Automobilia Monterey. Come visit, I'm just inside the door to the right Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. See you there!

Note to Self....

While manning my booth at this years "Laguna Art-A-Fair" my cell rang and I ended up talking with an old buddy. Not that this was unusual, but a customer walking by spied my phone. He stopped and asked where I had gotten the cell case. I replied I print them off my photo site and gave him a card. I guess if it's worth putting phone to ear, it's worth doing it in style. I've just added some new phones to my site, and it will only take a minute or two to find one just for you. And there is no better time other than right now to do it. Here's the link to where to find these and many more: https://www.johnstraubimageworks.com/p166727666

The Wild One

Before the Porsche Factory "Hopped-up" street cars of today emerged, there were 356 Gmund coupes that left a fledgling factory.

Driving these aluminum machines was a new kind of rebel here in the US. Some were young men coming back from the war that were seeking a new kind of sports car. Others joined from a new generation coming of age to a Rock and Roll beat, and breaking more rules than just the speed limit. The Gmund coupes were the start of this being raced in Europe and State Side. This is one of those cars, meet "No Tires Today."

BTW. this was Jerry Seinfeld's car used in the TV production of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee."

This is a 16"x 24" gloss print infused onto metal and custom made repurposed barn wood frame. It's wired, ready to hang, and be enjoyed! It can be yours for $450 including shipping here in the US.

Alluring at 50 Years Old...

With the 50th anniversary of Porsche's 914 model, I set out to create an image called "Untitled #2" that had the gorgeous hues of its classic "Signal Orange" paint color. What better car to use to have a positively euphoric effect than the 914-6GT, set against an old fire house under the glow of a light. This particular car was used in the 1970 Marathon de la Route. Porsche entered three 914-6GT's in the 86 hour race held at the Nurburgring finishing one, two, and three!

This image can be ordered in a 16"x 24" gloss print infused onto metal with a custom brushed metal backing for $595 or a 24"x 36" for $995. They come signed, ready to hang and enjoy. This is the first time I have offered this image, so the "Artist Proofs" are available and you'll love the detail.
