I did Hunter S Thompson because he was modern icon, an insane blaze of creativity with a tremendous dark side who saw the world in a different way. He was also basiclly just bonkers and really cool. His writings along wig his cohort, Ralph steadman’s, art being artistic influences of mine. Wouldn’t we all like our ashes to be shot out of a cannon?
