A Birthday Toast to the One and Only Ralph Steadman

77 Years of Creative Genius

“Every time we receive label art from Ralph we’re like kids on Christmas morning, and the artwork for Raging Bitch was extra special to us because it was for a beer commemorating Flying Dog’s 20th anniversary. We absolutely loved it from the moment we saw it.”

Our CEO Jim Caruso offered these sentiments in the foreword of a recently published 160-page catalog of Ralph Steadman’s work, including the original art for Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA.  Presented by the London Cartoon Museum, STEADman @ 77 is a retrospective of Ralph’s work over the past 50 years and a present day celebration of his wild creativity.

We are honored and forever grateful that Ralph has left his indelible mark on our labels for the past 19 years.

“He is not only an artist, but also a principled genius and possibly the one TRUE artist in the world. Thank you, Ralph, for making a noticeable dent in the universe. And for your friendship.” 

Love,

Jim Caruso and all of us at Flying Dog
