Ralph Steadman

August 13, 2009

Even though I’m indifferent when it comes to Hunter S. Thompson, I do think that Ralph Steadman’s illustrations for a lot of Thompson’s work are insanely brilliant.  I discovered Steadman’s style while watching a documentary on Thompson, and I was in awe of how he controls ink.  Somehow his irrational lines and splatters create a disturbing harmony.

Steadman’s writing is just as interesting as his illustrations.

Steadman has also done illustrations for many classics like Animal Farm, Treasure Island, Fahrenheit 451 and Alice in Wonderland.
