Item Description

This signed Ralph Steadman print is the image of Hunter S. Thompson asleep in a fishing boat chair with the shadow of a vulture creeping up from behind and a shark lurking in the waters below. An image from Steadman's 2006 book "The Joke's Over," a memoir of his friendship and collaboration with famed Gonzo Journalist Hunter S. Thompson. The "Joke's Over" prints cover the span of their association, from their first meeting in Kentucky to the 2005 memorial service at which Thompson's ashes were blasted out of a cannon and include work from "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," "The Curse of Lono," and "The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved," among many others. One-color silkscreen on white Rising Stonehenge deckle edge paper measuring 22 x 30 inches.
