Ashley Holt is an illustrator and opinionated crank raised in the bygone century known as South Carolina, recently transplated to Wuppertal, Germany. His wide variety of neurotic quirks and extreme sensitivity to broad social trends are chronicled as The Symptoms, a continuing blog of sophisticated tantrums. Ashley's work has appeared in many defunct publications and hard-to-sell books. He is considered a complete failure by those envious of his genius. He has a website full of purty pitchers: www.ashleyholt.com
