Doug's Donation to C2E2 Charity Auction

Doug is donating this 14 1/2 x 19 1/2 watercolor original to the 3rd Annual Charity Auction at C2E2, April 25-27.  All proceeds from the auction - scheduled for Saturday evening, April 26 - go to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
 
His lovely blond is rendered on Arches of France cold press art board using Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes - the same quality paper and dyes he's used on every Playboy cartoon since September 1964.

Playboy Gag Rough Rejects: April 15th IRS Deadline

With the IRS deadline to file 2013 taxes only a few days away, I thought these 2 Playboy gag rough rejects were appropriate to share.
 
Since Doug's first full-page color cartoon was published in Playboy - September 1964, he's submitted thousands of cartoon gag roughs to the magazine.  Of course, not all can be selected for final art and ultimate publication.
 
So, enjoy these undiscovered Sneyds!
