Ralph Steadman

Ralph Steadman is an aritst and illustrator who’s drawings are bilious, snarling and scary. He is America’s counter-culture Godfather of gonzo-journalism (a style including the reporter as part of the story via fist person narrative.)

He’s part of ‘The Cartoonist’ club in London and his work is wildly exuberant, often a grotesque distortion of peoples features.

Look out for his new book ‘Proud Too be Weirrd,’ although it will set you back a cool £250.  You’ll find a collection of his drawings and reflections from smoking to the role of chances in life.
