"This was bat country, before I put ricin in their flies."

Ralph Steadman is Gonzo art and Gonzo art is Ralph Steadman. The artist worked with author Hunter S. Thompson to illustrate his works and together they discussed and shaped each other's style until both Thompson's journalism and Steadman's ink drawings were called Gonzo—something directly from the point of view of the author full of "social critique and self-satire," which is a phrase I just cribbed from Wikipedia of all places.
