Prelims for Cartoon Originals From Playboy Press Publications

In addition to having nearly 500 of Doug's full-page color cartoons published in Playboy magazine since the early 1960s, a limited number of cartoon originals were featured in supplementary collections from Playboy Press/Chicago.

(All of Doug's work for Playboy was rendered on Arches of France cold press art board using Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes; image area approximately 13 1/2 x 18.)

To see these available cartoon originals - some with preliminary roughs, visit the newest CAF gallery room - Cartoon Originals - at the Doug Sneyd Premium Gallery at:
