Renowned artist Ron English has channeled his creativity into the fashion world, starting with the POPaganda 2014 lookbook.

Using a photorealist technique and comic book aesthetic, English has created a cast of disturbing characters within his work, including skeletal figures, hyper-sexualized animals and the well-known figures of 'MC Supersized' (a grotesque fast-food spokesperson) and 'Abraham Obama.'

His debut collection, comprised of t-shirts and headwear, is built around these signature characters. While fans of his art work will most definitely enjoy the apparel, those who are unfamiliar might need a chance to adjust to his surrealistic, borderline freakish style. English's work may be unorthodox and haunting, but, like most art, it is thought-provoking and worth a second look. The collection will be launching at Zumiez and related retailers within the coming weeks.
