Ian Cook is a trained artist and automotive enthusiast as well as a remote-control-car fan. While some might consider these hobbies to be mutually exclusive, Cook has combined both of his passions to create unique automotive artwork.

In lieu of paintbrushes, Cook uses a variety of RC cars, and sometimes real cars, to spread the colors on his canvas.
