Doug Personalizes Baseball at Dallas Comic Con

Most of Doug's sketches at comics-cartoon conventions are done on Arches of France cold press paper/art board or in copies of Unpublished Sneyd, featuring 100 of his favorite Playboy gag rough rejects.  

However, on Saturday, May 19 at the Dallas Comic Con, an attendee commissioned Doug to personalize a baseball.  No problem!  He did a likeness of Lydia from the October 1994 (p. 113) cartoon published in Playboy.  It was also reproduced on the cover of The Art of Doug Sneyd, published by Dark Horse Comics.

The 248-page book, featuring nearly 270 of Doug's 450+ Playboy cartoons, has been nominated for a 2012 Eisner Award in the Best Humor Publication category.  Eisner Award winners will be announced Friday evening, July 13 at the San Diego Comic-Con, the largest comics-cartoon convention in North America.
