Iconoclastic British artist Ralph Steadman has been creating editorial and political illustrations for over five decades. Steadman is revered for his ink-splattered, anarchic, and often shocking drawings. His well-known illustrations alongside the work of literary legend Hunter S. Thompson have long been celebrated and have achieved a cult-like following. Together, Steadman and Thompson s iconic work has come to be known as Gonzo journalism. Ralph and Hunter first met in 1970 on an assignment from Scanlan s Monthly magazine to cover the Kentucky Derby. Their 40-year friendship included collaborations on seminal books such as Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and The Curse of Lono, as well as numerous articles for Jann Wenner s Rolling Stone, including the George Foreman vs. Muhammad Ali fight and coverage of the Watergate Scandals. PROUD TOO BE WEIRRD is the ultimate monograph of this creative genius. Steadman s first-person narrative takes us on a literary and visual journey of his well-known, provocative work and is accompanied by his acerbic wit, heartfelt political views, and unique sense of humour. This must-have book comes in two collectible editions. All one thousand, limited edition books are numbered and signed by Steadman and each comes in a red, cloth-wrapped, slipcased box. Steadman is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades for his illustrations in classic books such as Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island, Animal Farm, and Fahrenheit 451. His revered work has appeared in numerous publications throughout the years including Rolling Stone, The Daily Telegraph, and The New York Times. This fall, a documentary film on Steadman, narrated by Johnny Depp, will be released by Sony Pictures. Fifteen years in the making, the film For No Good Reason highlights the many reasons to admire this one-of-a-kind artist. Likewise, PROUD TOO BE WEIRRD celebrates the profound creative genius of Ralph Steadman.
