Doug's Final Full-Page Color Playboy Cartoon

The January/February 2016 issue of Playboy was the last to feature full-page color cartoons.  Doug's first cartoon appeared on p. 205 in the September 1964 issue; this was his final appearance in the magazine.

caption:  "It was a fantastic night, Babs!  First he took me to a charming little restaurant no one's ever heard of and then he showed me an erogenous zone I never knew existed."  


All of Doug's preliminary development pencil and color roughs and full-page color cartoons in Playboy since the early 1960s were done by hand - overlays were common.

This pencil rough, image area 7 1/2 x 10, was done on heavy tracing vellum.


The cover of the January-February 2016 issue featured Pamela Anderson, who appeared on 14 covers.  Her first cover was in October 1989.
