A native of Baltimore, Lawrence White is widely regarded by those who know him as mentally unstable. Having attended some of the finest schools in the region he was successful at being asked to leave all of them without actually graduating. With few credentials and fewer recommendations, Mr. White has held a number of jobs including oil rig worker, stage hand, and salesman.
Drawing and telling stories came early to Mr. White. In fact, they often interfered with what he was supposed to be doing. Lawrence draws the comic 'My Secret Life' distributed by the Art Comic Syndicate.
