This Week's Top Selection
If there was one car I wanted as a young man it was the Ford Mustang. I loved the look of the original coupe. The fastback was cool, but the coupe just had something special. The angular back, the sweeping sides and that beautiful grill with the Mustang right in the middle. It was and still is a cool car. Who knows, maybe I’ll do one of the fastback and the convertible and make them a triptych. Could be cool.
Reminder, this series will cover everything from pickup trucks and tractors, to Cadillacs and Campers and everything in between.
This Week's Selections
Tom Landry. A True Texan.
Every Sunday afternoon during football season in my youth, I had the pleasure of watching the classiest head coach in the NFL — Tom Landry. He was a true football genius, a true gentleman and a true Texan. Part of my tribute series to my friends, heroes and personalities that exhibit the attributes of being a Texan.
1970 Cadillac Eldorado
Other than pickup trucks, I can think of no other vehicle that says “Texas” more than a Cadillac Eldorado, especially with horns on the front. Print is available in three sizes: 12”x12”, 16”x16", 18”x18"

"Plenty of artists have style, but Jonathan’s work is more than that. His style is assertive, but approachable. And every piece tells a distinctive story. Each viewer may see that story a little differently, but everyone leaves with a chapter to enjoy."
– Vinny Minchillo | Glass House Strategy
"Jonathan’s Fairy Report is a remarkably imaginative idea. Singlehandedly creating the imagery is equally remarkable. I was first enchanted with the concept by the little fairy on the night-stand reading glasses. Bravo Jonathan!"
