Draw ‘n Fire Art “Upgraded” Cobra Cobretti

Monday, June 3rd, 2024

Remember the movie Cobra with Sylvester Stallone? Chewing on a match, dark shades, a badass car, and a hero who takes a moment mid-gunfight to chug a beer in a grocery store.

Sure ya do. It’s a cult sh!tshow classic. Maybe not the best of over-the-top cringe-worthy trope-flicks, but definitely worth the watch!

Loren Michkin art: Sylvester Stallone in "Cobra";two dfferent version available.

Draw ‘n’ Fire Art

In any case, Lorin Michki, aka @drawnfireart on Instagram, recently completed two updated versions of the titular hero in movie poster style. One shows Lt. Cobretti with the custom Colt Gold Cup National Match pistol he carried in the film. The other version features “Cobra” carrying a Chambers Custom “Working Man’s Gun.” (WMG). Happily for you car folks, it also features Cobretti’s custom 1950 Mercury.


Check out Michkin’s store if you’re looking for some badass prints. It’s on Etsy.


Even if you aren’t a Cobra fan, do yourself a fan and check out Michkin’s work. Unless I completely miss my guess (and I won’t) there will be something there you like.

Like this, for instance.

Goat Story – Goat Mug

Friday, May 10th, 2019

Drinking Horns are one of those cool ‘ancient warrior’ ways to quaff your favorite brew (or any beverage, really; no judgements here), second only to drinking from the repurposed skulls of your enemies. However, they’re not the most practical drinking vessel, due to their shape. And, sure, purpose-made stands do exist for horns, but what if there were a more practical way to carry a horn with you, everywhere you go?

Well, Goat Story has their own take on the portable Drinking Horn in the Goat Mug. It’s a coffee mug horn that comes with a drink sleeve/holder made of leather or faux leather. This sleeve doubles as a stand for the horn, so it can readily be set on a surface. The Goat Mug also comes with a couple of straps, for attaching the horn to a bag, or even strapped around your shoulders.
