Somewhere in the northeast of England lives a 34-year old artist who now has a fan in the eastern United States… Me! I came across the RC artwork of Paul Pike while loitering on Facebook and immediately fell in love with his style. His website, http://www.ikesink.co.uk, is filled with a variety of subject matter but what I found most interesting was the way he caricaturized RC vehicles. His passion for racing nitro buggies led to him combining that with his passion for art. Here in the Backyard you will see just a couple of examples of what Paul does and a little about how he does it. You can contact Paul to have him do your RC car, truck or buggy by checking out his web page for contact info. Enjoy!
“I have been an artist all my life. I am not the best but I don’t think I am the worst either. As an artist I find inspiration in the works of other artists, particularly artists that also share my love of the RC hobby. I have not done much RC art in recent years but aft er seeing how much Paul enjoys doing what he does I think it is time to break out my sketch book again.”
