Fear And Loathing In Elementary School- Ralph Steadman's Little Red Computer

You probably know Ralph Steadman as the guy who provided illustrations for many of Hunter S. Thompson's articles and books, but despite his uniquely sketchy style Ralph's works are not easily resigned to a specific age group or target audience.

Alongside his adult, and psychotically psychedelic, works are plenty of not-so-scary projects, like his award winning illustrations for Alice In Wonderland, his illustrations for good friend Bernard Stone’s Mouse series, and this oddball kiddie masterpiece-The Little Red Computer.

It’s the sad story of an oddball computer who can neither count nor seem to fit in with the rest of the computer clones, and may be the first children's book about computers ever published, since it first came out in 1969.

It was a very odd thing - But I had picked up Dogs Bodies at the school book fair in 1978. It was the oddest thing. I liked it because of the grotesque exaggeration of the dogs.

The Art of Ralph Steadman: A Savage Satirist from The Economist is a fascinating watch. He's now drawing birds (both real and imagined):

People have said, you know, I thought you'd be a nasty piece of work because you're so dark and tension ... and I said no, you know, I got rid of it. It's all on paper.
