Info Below Derived From

Frahm is best known for his “Ladies in Distress” pin-up girls paintings in which beautiful young women casually going about their daily business suddenly and mysteriously have their panties fall to the ground in a variety of public situations, causing maximum embarrassment and often causing them to spill their bag of groceries.

In one of Frahm’s noted idiosyncratic touches, celery is often depicted. The falling-panties paintings were also imitated by other pin-up artists, such as Jay Scott Pike and Al Brulé.

In addition to pin-ups, Frahm created a series of humorous hobo themed calendar illustrations. Another set of paintings celebrated traffic safety, complete with smiling, chubby crossing guards and schoolchildren (one such painting appears as a calendar print in the background of a bar scene in the movie Hud). His advertising art included works for Coca-Cola and Coppertone.
