Illustrations for Children's Poetry Books

Since the early days as a free-lance illustrator in Toronto to when he moved to his third-floor home-studio in Orillia, Ontario, in 1969, Doug has done illustrations for well over 60 children's books, including Classy Cats, a 1991 book of children's poetry by Lola Sneyd - no relation to Doug.

Thirty-five of his black and white pencil sketches in Classy Cats "add considerably to the lighthearted appeal of the verse." (Hamilton Spectator review)

Lola Sneyd, poet, and Doug Sneyd, artist, collaborated on four books - The Asphalt Octopus, The Concrete Giraffe, Nature's Big Top and Classy Cats.
