If the name Ralph Steadman doesn't ring a bell, how about Hunter S. Thompson or "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas?"
Ralph Steadman was the artist who did all the original artwork for Hunter S. Thompson and had a huge role in the way the movie for "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" was produced.
 Steadman had a long partnership with the American journalist Hunter S. Thompson, drawing pictures for several of his articles and books. He accompanied Thompson to the Kentucky Derby for an article for the magazine Scanlan's, to the Honolulu Marathon for the magazine Running, and illustrated both Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72. Much of Steadman's artwork revolves around Raoul Duke-style caricatures of Thompson: bucket hats, cigarette holder and aviator sunglasses.
