"Taken from Hunter S. Thompson's cult classic, Fear and Loathing in Las
Vegas, Savage Journey is one of the most iconic and widely celebrated images in the novel. For this edition
Ralph Steadman teamed up with curator Brian Chambers to create this extraordinary,
limited edition, screen print. The edition of 150 have all been signed
and numbered in red ink and embellished with his trademark flourish, the
splat, in Ultramarine Blue. Each is a unique piece in its own right.
They were produced by Kentucky based, Master Printer, Joe Petro III who has
collaborated for decades with Ralph on his screen prints including the
Hunter Memorial print, Vintage Dr Gonzo, The Sherriff and most recently,
About The Artist: In 1969 Ralph Steadman received his big break when
he illustrated an article written by the polarizing author Hunter S.
Thompson. A 40-year collaboration between the two ensued, making
Steadman one of the most widely recognized illustrators of his time.
Inspired by George Grosz and John Heartfield,
Steadman developed a distinctive style defined by energetic ink
splatters and grotesque, flamboyant figures. His drawings have appeared
alongside time-honored tales such as Alice in Wonderland, Animal Farm, and Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
He is also well known for humorous and caustic political cartoons,
which depict the likes of Richard Nixon and George Bush. In 2014, For No Good Reason, a documentary detailing Steadman’s life, was released.
