For No Good Reason

Yes, I was into Hunter S. Thompson, and the twisted drawings of Ralph Steadman. I wanted to be both. Possibly writing like Thompson and illustrating my own articles with the genius of Steadman. Unfortunately, neither did, or could come to pass.

I recently watched a great documentary on Ralph Steadman called “For No Good Reason”. Fantastic and full of stories of his warped time with HST. If you can stand Johnny Depp hovering over his shoulder chain smoking, you can actually watch the master Steadman producing his iconic splattered masterpieces before your eyes. There’s a bit of animation in it as well.

I know you are saying, “Joe, stop watching documentaries and finish your damn film”. Well every now and then I need some inspiration, and a break. But it’s showing it’s fleshy side and becoming quite crisp. I LIKE IT.
