Ralph Steadman, famous for his eccentric and devious depictions of Hunter S. Thompson’s wild rides in journalism, has joined Breaking Bad’s Vince Gilligan and created limited edition Blu-ray case covers for all six seasons of Breaking Bad. The limited edition Blu-ray Steelbooks will release February 2015.
“I watched the Breaking Bad whole series in two weeks and now suffer withdrawal symptoms,” Steadman said. “At first, I thought, this series is going to be all about death and desecration, but instead became a more complex landscape of human relationships. I hope I put something of these feelings into the portraits that I made of the characters, which were landscapes in themselves. An irony in the subject of crystal meth is how beautifully it resembles the desert sky.”
