Douglas Ladd grew up the son of rich-white sharecroppers in the vast expanse of the Wisconsin farmland. He pissed all his fortunes away on booze, #2 pencils and his collection of Hummel Figurines. Doug has been a freelance illustrator in the toy and game industry for over 10 years. In those ten years, he has never had an assignment with the word “vagina” in it. “V” is usually for reserved for the word “violin.” In his spare time between juggling job and kids, he maintains a small but rabid following at his Nascar based webcomic, The Pits.
