Florida SuperCon: Meeting Fans in Miami

Doug and I enjoyed talking with Steve (from Sunrise, Florida) during the 4-day Florida SuperCon in Miami; as a fan of Doug's work, he purchased the preliminary color rough for the Playboy cartoon published September 1997, p. 115, and also on p. 68 in The Art of Doug Sneyd, which was published by Dark Horse Books and nominated in 2012 for an Eisner Award in the Best Humor Publication category.

Christie and Brent (from Miami) commissioned an 11 x 17 watercolor portrait of Christie;  Doug does 10 x 14 and 11 x 17 pencil portrait sketches at comics-cartoon conventions.  His watercolor commissions are done in his studio, using Arches of France cold press art board and Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes, which he also uses for his Playboy originals.

Paulo purchased a copy of The Art of Doug Sneyd and also had him personalize the 248-page hardcover book with a classic Sneyd bunny pencil sketch.
