When the A. Fox calendar company needed an artist to complete the last two years of the Art Frahm "panties-falling-down" series, they turned to Jay Scott Pike. Among the memorable images he created for Fox are a gas station scene and, as the last in this important series, featured a brunette and her dog outside a construction site is entitled "Dog Tied".

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Jay Scott Pike enrolled at the Art Students League in Manhattan, New York City at the age of 16. After military service in the United States Marines, he went on to study at the Parsons School of Design, Syracuse University, and the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida.

Besides the pinups we showcase in this gallery, he has painted award-winning illustrations for magazines and comic books (he created the DC character Dolphin and co-created the Marvel character Jann of the Jungle), as well as advertisements for major corporate clients like Proctor and Gamble, Pepsi, General Mills, Ford, Borden's, and Trans World Airlines. Near the close of his commercial career, Pike turned to painting canvases of sensuous fine-art nudes. His exquisite pencil drawings of nudes first appeared in the Playboy clubs before being published as limited-edition graphics.

In recent years, he has accepted many portrait commissions.
