Last Saturday The Clutter Gallery opened it's doors to reveal Ron English's "Thought Factory", a solo exhibition featuring English's never-before-displayed utilitarian toy drawings and turnarounds.

Remaining works from the show are now available for purchase online. 

"Thought Factory" is a peek into the inner workings of English's process, containing original sketches, drawings, and paintings made for large scale designer toy releases.


These works are the blue prints of some of the most iconic and sought after art toys of our time, marking this exhibition as one of great historical importance. The original sketches and concept drawings featured in the "Thought Factory" Exhibition contained some of Ron's most recognizable characters and works including his Cartoon Guernica, Cap'n Cornstarch, the Temper Tot, and Charlie Brown Grin.
