This is a short looping animation for use at the ‘Gonzo‘ Speed Museum event from July 12th – November 10th 2019. I originally created the Hunter Thompson animation a few years back ‘for no good reason‘ (personal project – I’m a bit of a fan – of both Hunter and Ralph) and was contacted by the Speed Museum about using it at their ‘GONZO THE ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO HUNTER S. THOMPSON’ event. The video will play on a large screen at Churchill Downs, the home of the Kentucky Derby.
Hunter S. Thompson wrote an article on the Kentucky Derby in 1970 stating that ‘the Kentucky Derby is decadent and depraved‘. Ralph Steadman, who sketched the artwork for the piece (above) is set to be at the Gonzo event this year.
