November 2001 Playboy Cartoon: Approved Gag Rough and Preliminary Roughs

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Doug's November 2001, p. 81 Playboy cartoon was also reproduced in The Art of Doug Sneyd, p. 209; the 248-page hardcover book was published by Dark Horse Books in 2011 and nominated in 2012 for an Eisner Award in the the Best Humor Publication category.

Over the years since his first cartoon (September 1964, p. 205) was published in Playboy, Doug has submitted thousands of cartoon roughs.

The following is the cartoon rough submitted and approved by Hugh Hefner.  Note: change in the caption (in blue) and request to have the finish submitted "right away" (in red).

Preliminary pencil rough (size:  7 1/2" x 9 1/4") - this is not the final pencil rough as Doug has not drawn the ship in the upper right corner.

Color rough (size:  8" x 9 3/4") -  notice Doug decided to omit the tree in the original and change the dress and hair for the 3 Pilgrims.
