I love this guy’s Art.

I first saw Ralph Steadman’s Art in Hunter S. Thompson’s The Curse of Lono, which also happens to be the first Hunter S. Thompson book I ever read. I’ve been a junkie for both ever since.

Although I admit to being behind in my HST readings. Mayhap time to pick up his last few works….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Don’t worry too much: HST’s life has caught up with him, and he’s getting to decayed, decrepit, doddering, and boring. He’s lost all his insight and devolved into a caricature of himself, sort like a psychopathic Grandpa Walton.

    However, I highly recommend Steadman’s illustrated version of Alice in Wonderland.

    This is not news. I may just pick up Screwjack, and leave it be. SOme oof the ESPN articles were good, if you ahppen to like sports, but otherwise, same old, same old.

    I still gotta get my fix. Maybe time to re-read Hell’s Angels, one of the better “serious” ones.

    As to Alice, perhaps I will pick it up. Iv’e heard good things about it.

    Have you seen the art he did for Flying Dog Breweries? He did all the labels for their seven different brews, and they’re all quite interesting to say the very least. If you haven’t had or seen anything by Flying Dog, I recommend that you get thee to the Peace Street Market as soon as humanly possible and pick up a 12 pack “litter” or at least a six of Tire Bite or Road Dog Scottish Porter. Great art on great beer…how much better can it get?

    If you can’t get to the Peace St. Market, then take a look at the art here.

    U know of Flying Dog, I’ve just not tried it yet. And I remember seeing them when they first hit Raleigh, and thinking “Beer with HST quotes and Steadman art on the boxes. It’s either really good, or really bizzare.”

    You’re the first person I know who has had anythign to say about them, and since that’s positive, I’ll ahve to try some!
