My favourite caricaturists Part 4 Ralph Steadman

Mon 3rd Sep 2018

I can honestly say that Ralph Steadman inspired me to become a full time cartoonist back in my youth. Looking at his work now it seems to be more harsher than his earlier drawings, but he is still up there amongst the greats as far as I am concerned. His lofty position can be reaffirmed by a story I heard when I was working on a corporate at Cheltenham Town Hall a few years back. I got talking to one of the staff who expressed an interest in what I was doing. He then proceeded to tell me that during the Cheltenham Book Festival Ralph Steadman was asked along to be "artist in residence". My friend managed to meet him backstage and duly told him how great he thought his work was. Steadman, no doubt flattered then said " I will do a quick sketch of you if you like." My friend then said the result was proudly hanging in his living room, but then added almost as an afterthought.....it looks nothing like me!!  I thought how great to be in that position where your admiring public are proud to have your working in their home, even if they cannot see any resemblance
