Gonzo Nixon

Ralph Steadman was a longtime collaborator of the late writer and journalist Hunter S. Thompson and associates himself with Thompson's concept of "Gonzo" journalism.

Steadman's cartoon, "Richard M. Nixon," was featured in Thompson's book about the 1972 presidential campaign.

Steadman told Navasky he believes what a cartoon has to say is often more important than its style.
