The Kent resident is immortalised in a new documentary out on 25 April fronted by his long-time friend Johnny Depp

Veteran cartoonist and artist Ralph Steadman is probably best known for his squiggly lined collaborations with Hunter S. Thompson, whose early works of gonzo journalism in the 1970s he illustrated in magazines and books.

Now the Kent resident is the focus of Charlie Paul’s lavish new documentary For No Good Reason, which is released on 25 April and is fronted by Ralph’s long-time friend Johnny Depp.

Kent Life photographer Rikard Osterlund took a series of pictures of Ralph in the artist’s studio when he was helping judge the recent The Best of … Art competition in Rochester.
