Pencil Roughs: Blond Reports Missing Frog

In addition to having his full-page color cartoons published regularly in Playboy magazine, Doug also had cartoons selected for Playboy Press Special Edition collections.

A pregnant blond reporting a missing frog was published on p. 50 in Playboy Presents SEX and Other Late-Night Laughs, 1990.  

It was also reproduced on p. 173 in The Art of Doug Sneyd, published by Dark Horse Books in 2011.  The 248-page hardcover book, also available now in a softcover edition, features 270 of Doug's Playboy cartoons; his first cartoon was published in the September 1964 issue.

caption:  "Short, about six inches, pale-green complexion, hops, eats flies . . ."

Doug's preliminary roughs are all done by hand; his originals - approximately 14 1/2" x 19 1/2" - are rendered on Arches of France cold press art board using Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes.
