Through the years he branched out into many other artistic fields. Working with American writer Hunter S. Thompson, Steadman co-founded the movement known as GONZO journalism, the definitive book of which is "Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas." He has illustrated more than 50 books including, including classics such as "Alice in Wonderland," "Treasure Island" and "Animal Farm."
