This past weekend Ron English attended the very last Babytattooville. The highlight of the trip was the Surrealist Ball hosted by Mark Ryden and Marion Peck. Attendees included Anthony Ausgang, Sas Christian, Olivia De Berardinis, Camille Rose Garcia, Bosko Hrnjak, KRK Ryden, Isabel Samaras and many more. The dress code for the evening was a bit unconventional but appropriate for the surrealist event. Guests were decked out in glamorous, surreal inspired, avant garde costumes.
Ron English and Team POPaganda have another eventful comic con in store. See the complete event and signing schedule below. We'll see you there!
Ron will be at the @lastgasp Booth (#1614) on Thursday from 3-5 signing the recently released Vandalism Starter Kit! Take the books off of the coffee table and into the street with this collection of ready-to-assail Popaganda stickers.
Here is snapshot of our activity this weekend at Zumiez. Additional images and video will be coming from Zumiez shortly. On July 27th 2015 POPaganda partnered with Zumiez to create/host a POPaganda Couch Party. The event took place at the Zumiez location at 840 Broadway in Union Square. The event took place from 2PM - 6PM, was open to the public and featured POP themed games complimentary snacks, beverages and POPanada give aways. For the event Ron custom painted a Zumiez Couch.

Thanks to our partners, friends and fans, POPaganda crushed at SXSW this year! Ron and Risk did a mural at Spiderhouse Café, which served as home base for the POP Team.

It's hard to remember, but the Branch Davidian siege in Waco lasted nearly two months before its fiery end, and for most of that time, a lively carnival atmosphere pervaded on the road leading up to the compound. Ron visited that road two weeks before the end. RIP.

The world won't be the same without him.
Only the evaporated ascend.
We are the new They.
