"Loose, Airy" Drawing Style Gives Flair to Satire on Driving

Doug's drawing style of luscious, girl-next-door blondes, featured in Playboy cartoons since 1964, is as readily recognizable as is his stylized signature and "loose, airy" illustrations, used throughout the 124-page book You: The Road Warrior, written by Dan Hales and published in 1990 by Challex Books.

Having traveled extensively throughout Canada and the U.S. by car and motor home, Doug felt quite qualified as an insightful and objective observer well able to use his "artistic savvy" to comment graphically on the hurried, crowded and sometimes laughable routine drivers often endure in traffic.
