Ron English (born 1959) is an American contemporary artist who explores brand imagery and advertising. Born in Decatur, Illinois, he is known for the use of color and comic book collage.

In 2005 English began creating designer toy versions of his creatures and has been producing these collectibles ever since. He has produced over 50 different designer toys.

Ronnnie Rabbbit was English's first designer toy, produced in 2005 by Dark Horse. In 2013, he joined Slash to create a limited edition fiberglass bust of the image used for the Slash and Friends album artwork. He also joined singer Chris Brown to launch their "Dum English" toy; a 10-inch turquoise and pink Astronaut Star Skull.

In 2013, English collaborated with rock band Pearl Jam to produce "Falla Sheep", a blind box line-up with seven color variants of 3.5 inch sheep in wolves' clothing toys. These were sold in stores and also at shows during Pearl Jam's 2013 tour.
