Favorite "Unpublished Sneyd" Gag Roughs

A cartoon gag rough is just what the name implies: a rough drawing that must, within seconds, convey the humor of the gag line.

In Doug's 52-page book, Unpublished Sneyd, he's selected 100 of his favorite rejects from the thousands of B & W and color gag roughs that he has submitted to Playboy since 1963.

(This "favorite" is from pg. 31.) Enjoy!

Fans of Doug's work often ask, "Do you think up the gag lines?"

He admits, "At one time I did, but I don't anymore because gag writers are more accomplished at this type of creativity. My time is better spent on the drawing board."

Doug will attend Comic-Con - exhibiting with Big Wow Art, in San Diego July 23-27, and signing copies of Unpublished Sneyd.
