Happy Thanksgiving: Doug's Playboy Cartoon, November 2001 Issue

caption:  "We thank thee for this wondrous bounty, Lord - oh, and thanks for all the food."

Doug's full-page color cartoon was published in the November 2001 issue of Playboy on p. 81.

loose-style gag rough (size:  8 1/2 x 11) approved by Hef - change to caption in blue pencil and "OK full color HMH" and "need right away"

final preliminary pencil rough (size:  7 1/2 x 9 7/8 on heavy tracing vellum)

Doug typically xeroxes a final pencil rough and then applies aniline dyes for a color rough.  He can then decide if wants to make changes, such as the man's hair color and clothing worn by the girl on the right, before going to final art.

The full-page color cartoon was also reproduced on p. 209 in The Art of Doug Sneyd, published by Dark Horse Books in July 2011.  The 248-page hardcover book, now also available in a softcover edition, was a 2012 Eisner Award nominee in the Best Humor Publication category.
