Doug's new 24-page sketchbook, Mermaids, is lots of fun as it focuses on his renderings of these alluring mythical beauties for both newspaper and magazine cartoons, commissioned artwork and a collectible statue based on a Sneyd mermaid cartoon gag rough reject.
Big Wow Art is at booth #4903; Doug has exhibited with Steve Morger's art group since 2007.
Besides his April 1993, p. 161 and August 1999, p. 85 full-page color cartoons in Playboy, two Doug Sneyd single-panel cartoons are reproduced in Mermaids.
For nearly 20 years, starting in the mid-60s, Doug Sneyd and SCOOPS news cartoons appeared daily in newspapers across North America.
After meeting at C2E2 in 2010, sculptor Clay Moore and Doug collaborated to produce a 1/8 statue based on a Sneyd cartoon gag rough reject. Preliminary development roughs for the collectible statue are also reproduced in Mermaids.
