In fact, the “Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho” cover was created by non-other than the famed cartoonist, painter, and author, Ralph Steadman. Travis Scott even featured him multiple times on his Instagram, capturing Steadman at work.
The 81 year-old, Welsh artist is most known for his illustrations on the book and movie poster artwork of “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas“. With the early work of the late author, Harry S. Thompson, he and Steadman revolutionized “Gonzo“- a type of journalism where the reporter is set to be part of the story. Steadman’s work is easily recognizable by its often experimental and drug induced-style. And, with a 40-year track record, nothing seems to be stopping the artist from creating and further perfecting his craft.
