    Cool Cobra inspired Art

    One thing which will hopefully attract more members to our site, is our extensive Photo Gallery, which is fast becoming a useful and easy way of searching for specific Cobra related images...

    Part of my Cobra-phernalia collection, consists of images that I can only describe as "Cobra inspired Art". In this category, I include Cobra related cartoons, sketches, paintings, drawings, 3D graphic renditions, animations, concept renditions etc. Basically any image which is not a photo taken of a actual Cobra.

    Hopefully, you will also have a few to share...

    Gian,

    This could be a great thread and I like what you have posted so far but what happened to the one that you asked me about? It wasn't bad and would probably get more of the artists on here to post their pictures. To bad we can't get Buzz from the other site to come over and post some of his stuff as he is a great artist and has posted some Cobra drawings he drew that were great.

    Ron, Buzz is more than amazing. He also seems to lead a good life.

    He leads a great life and you should hear some of the stories he has told. Like the time Clinton was playing golf there when he was President and Buzz went by with his Cobra. He should be working for one of the car companies as a designer. His work is far superior to anything coming out of Detroit today.

    Gotta love David Uhl's painting of CSX2067, the ex-Carol Connors Cobra (who wrote the hit song, Hey Little Cobra), with CSX2128 in the background.



    He also painted CSX2345 at the Sierra-Montagna Grand Prix in Aug 1964...



    ...as well as CSX3015, Carroll Shelby's own twin-Paxton Cobra aka "Super Snake."

    Bruce Docker painted a nice 427 street Cobra in acrylic on wood panel.

    But of course, Carroll's good friend Bill Neale was really the godfather of Cobra artwork.

    Sundude, those are great! Thanks for posting them! ==)

    I saw that one of Bill Neale's paintings was signed by Shelby. Any idea what a painting like that would sell for? x4e

    No idea. Bill Neale was one of Carroll's close friends and he produced many Shelby-related paintings of Cobras and Shelby Mustangs and so on. I'm sure Carroll signed a few of them. It would be cool to have one of them on the wall at home, but alas...

    This watercolour is of CSX3045, a true "semi-competition" 427 which is going to be offered at RM Auctions Scottsdale in Jan 2013.

    Raul Trevino did a fun Cobra sketch which looks like CSX2142 to me


    Mike Bontoft did a nicely detailed drawing of a 427S/C Cobra


    Here's a cool Cobra cutaway


    Tim Townsley produced a photo-realistic oil-on-wood painting of a 427 street Cobra


    And here's the Bill Patterson painting commissioned for the 2012 Monterey Historics
