Playboy Cartoon: Final Pencil Prelim - May 1998

caption:  "No thanks, I was harassed at work." 

All of Doug's preliminary pencil roughs for his full-page color Playboy cartoons - the first was published on p. 205 in the September 1964 issue - were done by hand.

This final pencil rough - image area: 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 - is on heavy tracing vellum.  Overlays (see upper right corner) are also common in Doug's work as are random notes - reference to Mrs. Doubtfire at the top - possibly from a radio or television program he was listening to while working in his third floor home studio overlooking Lake Couchiching in Orillia, which is 80 miles north of Toronto.
