Meeting Fans in Lexington, Kentucky, Returning to San Jose, California May 17-18

Doug enjoyed meeting fans during his first guest appearance in Lexington, Kentucky. 
Christopher (from Lexington) purchased a 10 x 14 watercolor original from Doug's new collection, done in a loose, colorful style yet featuring a classic, lovely Sneyd blond.  These originals, like his 450+ full-page color cartoons published - since September 1964 - in Playboy, are rendered on Arches of France cold press watercolor paper using Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes. 
Doug's next appearance will be in San Jose, California Saturday and Sunday, May 17-18 - exhibiting at Big Wow ComicFest;  Doug's first comics-cartoon convention was in San Jose in May 2007.

Ivy (a fitness instructor from Lexington) was pleased with her pencil portrait sketch; available sizes for these convention commissions are:  9 x 12, 10 x 14 and 16 x 20.

11 x 17 limited edition prints, especially a classic winking bunny, are always popular with convention attendees. (A new Wonderwoman print debuted in Lexington.)

Doug's published 5 convention sketchbooks, including Playboy Preliminaries.

The Art of Doug Sneyd features 270 of Doug's full-page color Playboy cartoons.  It was published by Dark Horse Books and nominated, in 2012, for an Eisner Award in the Best Humor Publication category.  Doug is happy to sign copies of the 248-page hardcover book, at no charge.
