Hunter S. R.I.P by FuzzChile Hunter S. R.I.P by FuzzChile
The only journalist (with the exception of Lester Bangs)I ever had respect for died today after shooting himself. Hunter S Thompson will go down as one of great writers of the 20th century, I hope his legacy will live on in way Kerouac and Burroughs does today. I painted this in about 2002,(This is a extract from a page in my comic strip which can be seen fully here [link]) I've had big respect for this guy since the early 90's ,he was played by Johnny Depp in the adaptation of his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and he wrote many other funny drug and rock and roll fueled books . Observational even when totally wasted ..rocked the coolist hats and sunglasses known to man. A genius who will be missed by anyone who's read him. :(

He did make a cameo appearence in Fear and Loathing as I remember. I have to say I've not read the book but the film flips me out every time.

I just been reading about him again, Bill Murray also played him in a movie I will have to track that down . He gave birth to more honest to god form of writing ..which I hope my generation and the generations to come will follow with a zeal, and judging by his influence I'm sure they will.B-)

Both a genius and a madman, Hunter will be missed, I just heard the news a few minutes ago and Its sad to see such a wordsmith take his own life.
