He studied at the London College of Printing and Graphic Arts during the 1960s and commenced doing freelance work for Punch, Private Eye, the Daily Telegraph, the New York Times and Rolling Stone.

Thompson, drawing pictures for several of his articles and books. One of his comic strip projects was 'Theo'.

He made a contribution to 'The Beatles' Illustrated Lyrics Book' (Macdonald Unit 75, 1969). In 1997 he designed the cover for Frank Zappa's posthumous compilation album, 'Have I Offended Someone?', which compiled all of Zappa's most offensive songs. Steadman wrote a personal homage to Robert Crumb in Monte Beauchamp's book 'The Life and Times of R.
