Biography[edit]

A former engineer for Republic Aviation Corporation, he was the Acting System Engineer for the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II's AN/AAS-35(V) Pave Penny laser spot tracker. After Republic was acquired by Fairchild Aircraft, Doug worked in the support team for the Space Shuttle orbiter's tail section stabilizer. (of his tenure at these companies, Doug would describe them as "Horrendous shitty jobs, with God-like pay"). Doug also held an array of technical jobs (computer programmer, IT, software development, data management), as well as artistic ones:

He worked as a freelance animation background artist for Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer and Angry Beavers, as a graphic artist for toy/product companies Playmates Toys, Hasbro, Fisher-Price, Mattel, JMP Creative Inc., Applause Inc., Jakks Pacific, MGA Entertainment, Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and Wham-O, and for media company Radio AAHS, and others.

Death[edit]

Douglas Duncan Winger passed away at the Western Medical Center Santa Ana in Tustin, California, USA, at 01:20pm, Pacific time due to complications related to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart damage and related illnesses.[1][2] He is survived by two sisters and one nephew.

At the time of his death, Doug resided at the Hotel Yorba household in Santa Ana, California, USA, with fellow artists Steve Martin and Bob Guthrie.

Fandom involvement[edit]

Doug regularly played himself as a human character on FurryMUCK, where he often spent time in the Herm Haven (a place whose very existence can be partially credited to him). One of his most famous furry characters, Pandora Pup, is also a regular resident at the Haven -- but she/shi is not played by Doug.

Art style[edit]

Though he was best known for the hyper-endowment depicted in most of his drawings, his art also characterized his good humor and attention to detail. Doug was also known for his quick wit and love of word play. The unofficial unit of furry media squickage, the milliWinger, is named after him, as is the term Wingerized.
