Ralph Steadman

Best known for his political cartoons and book illustrations, British artist Ralph Steadman's work (born in 1936) can be easily recognized for its disturbing, crazy psychotic style and sketchy social caricatures. He does ink drawings as well as works in a variety of printmaking techniques such as silkscreen, lithograph, etching and other experimental processes. He has done illustrations for Alice in Wonderland, Animal Farm and his work was on the cover of several Hunter S. Thompson books. Along with art he also writes and works with Thompson. I really love his exaggerated style and the mark making he puts into his work.
