Mark, a long-time fan of Doug's work, purchased the 11 x 17 original of Mary Jane Watson.
Kara had Doug do a pencil sketch of Supergirl, her favorite superheroine.
Before a staff member picked up Doug's donation for the 5th annual C2E2 charity auction (Saturday evening, March 19th), Kara's father looked at the 11 x 17 Poison Ivy watercolor original . . . he came back to Artist Alley Sunday morning to tell Doug he was the winning bidder!
The 2016 charity auction raised $18,230.00 to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Terry commissioned a 10 x14 pencil sketch of Power Girl, a DC Comics superheroine, who first appeared in All Star Comics #58/January-February 1976.
(I took the photo after I wrapped the original with tracing paper.)
Doug has been a cartoonist for Playboy magazine since 1964.
For nearly 20 years, starting in the mid-60's, his "Doug Sneyd" and "Scoops" news cartoons appeared daily in newspapers across North America. Sneyd's talent has also led him into cinema: in 1993, he wrote, produced and directed "Black-eyed Susan," an educational movie-drama about spousal abuse, for the Ontario government. He was a founding member of the Canadian Society of Book Illustrators and has been a member of the National Cartoonists' Society and the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. Thirty of his full-page color Playboy cartoons are among the 235 Sneyd works included in the National Archives of Canada in Ottawa.
Sneyd was born in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, but spent much of his professional career in Toronto. In 1969 he moved his family north to Orillia made famous as the mythical "Mariposa" by humorist Stephen Leacock. He works on the third floor of his home-studio overlooking beautiful Lake Couchiching and spends his winters on the Gulf Coast in Orange Beach, Alabama.
