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. 




Watch him in action:
