Hunter S Thompson Cartoon

I love Hunter S Thompson. He was a genius and a madman. He lived and commented on a time of great cultural flux — in the 60s and 70s in the USA. He hated authority and convention. He was a poet of comedy and sarcasm. He hated cartoons. In a tirade he had about the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas where the producers tried to talk him into having a wave animation during the High Watermark passage he all but obliterated Ralph Steadman and all cartoons and animation. He was highly offended that anybody would compare his work to cartoons or use a cartoon to portray his work. I think it is fitting that I draw a cartoon of him.

About the Artist: I am a designer and illustrator who specializes in pop art and postmodernism. I also design athletic sneakers.
