New Year's Eve Loose-Style Gag Roughs

Since Doug's first full-page color cartoon was published in Playboy (September 1964, p. 205), he's submitted thousands of cartoon gag roughs to Hef for approval and rendering for final art and publication in the magazine.

After the successful publication in July 2011 of The Art of Doug Sneyd - a 248-page hardcover book featuring 270 of his full-page color Playboy cartoons - Doug collaborated with Dark Horse Books    on a second hardcover book.  Secret Sneyd: The Unpublished Cartoons of Doug Sneyd features 250 of his favorite loose-style gag roughs, including 13 celebrating New Year's Eve (pp. 205-217) in Chapter 8/Happy Holidays. 

from p. 206:  "Everybody quiet down, Marlene's starting the countdown!" 

The 280-page hardcover book, published April 2017, can be purchased at:

Earlier, in 2007, Doug selected 100 loose-style gag roughs for Unpublished; from p. 33, caption:  "Are you almost ready to go home now, dear."

A selection of loose-style gag rough originals is also available at the Doug Sneyd Premium Gallery at:
