Supertouch's own RON ENGLISH is currently running loose in south TEXAS where the sight of a pasture full of nice, innocent cows just grazing away, rekindled his relentless urge to paint everything in sight.

manhopedc1.jpg Just in time to celebrate President-Elect BARACK OBAMA's upcoming inauguration on January 20th, the SHEPARD FAIREY-organized MANIFEST HOPE DC art show (in collaboration with MoveOn.org) has opened its doors to the public in the nation's capitol. An extension of the original "Manifest Hope" show last year at the Democratic National Convention, this year's installment enjoys the distinction of celebrating a hard-won change instead of stating the case for it. Featuring original artwork by a diverse array of artists including Shepard Fairey, Tim Biskup, Tristan Eaton, Ron English, David Choe, Maya Hayuk, Andy Howell, Chris Pastras, HAZE, Travis Millard, House Industries, HVW8, Zoltron, JK5, Justin Hampton, Robbie Conal, and Sam Flores, the inclusive show is intended to reflect the grassroots movement that helped propel Obama to unheard of stratospheric heights.

Ron and his McBuddy rule Hong Kong with an iron fist and an army of undead Charlie Browns...

Making the rounds in old Hong Kong this week was Supertouch's own RON ENGLISH who hit up the island for the official debut of two of his new toy projects: his ABRAHAM OBAMA bust and SMILE figure. First up was his "Smile" reception at GARAGEWORKS GALLERY, where faithful HK hipsters turned up in droves to get a close-up glimpse at the New Jersey bad boy's brand-new vinyl reworking of old Charlie Brown's familiar grille. Moving along, it was off to the MINDSTYLE TOYS world HQ for the debut of Ronnie's timely Abraham Obama bust, a figure that must surely have HK residents scratching their heads in bewilderment. Dropping worldwide just in time for inauguration day, American fans can get ahold of the very elusive silver colorway exclusively at LA's hipster hotspot BARRACUDA, while supplies last.
