You may find it interesting to see changes - especially in the top background - Doug made in preliminary pencil and color roughs as well as in the final art, which was published in the August 2000 issue of Playboy on p. 125. It was also later reproduced in The Art of Doug Sneyd on the dust jacket back cover.
Caption: "Talk is cheap - everything else is going to cost you."
The 248-page hardcover book, published by Dark Horse Books in July 2011, featured 270 of Doug's Playboy cartoons.
It was also a 2012 Eisner Award nominee in the Best Humor Publication category.
