    Ron English: Status Factory Signed Hardcover First Edition with Sketch (Last Gasp, 2014). Amazon notes, "STATUS FACTORY is a hardcover art book presenting new paintings from street art legend Ron English. In his paintings, English perverts and subverts the establishment, poking fun at religion, consumerism, and blind obedience to popular culture. He uses humor as a wake-up call, and renders it with meticulous brush strokes.
    Ron English populates alternate versions of "The Last Supper" and "Guernica" with cartoon characters, drops camouflaged clowns on dinosaurs, and births incredible creatures from his fertile imagination. Among reinterpretations of familiar characters like Ronald McDonald and Mickey Mouse, you'll find three-eyed rabbits, udderly delicious cowgirls, grinning skulls, and many more.
    In addition to over 180 images from his paintings, Status Factory includes over 100 photographs of English's street art installations, subverted billboards, and other public art. An afterword by the artist delves into his creative process, explaining how source materials are transformed into his riveting images.
    Luxuriously printed on heavy art paper, this large-format coffee table book showcases Ron English's art beautifully. A great addition to any art library focused on street art, pop surrealism, graffiti, and painting." Mr. English has drawn a three-eyed monster, and has signed the book on the first page, in pencil. In Excellent condition.
