July 1989, p. 129 Playboy Cartoon Preliminary Pencil and Color Roughs

We thought you might be interested to see Doug's preliminary pencils, done on heavy tracing vellum, and the color rough for the July 1989 Playboy cartoon, published on p. 129.  All of Doug's work is done by hand.

Caption:  "I don't think of it as raising hemlines - I think of it as raising consciousnesses."

Artwork size for this pencil rough is 6 3/4 x 8 3/4.

Artwork size for the final pencil rough is 6 3/8 x 8 3/8.

Doug typically xeroxes the final pencil rough and then applies aniline dyes for the color rough.  Overlays are also typical in Doug's preliminary development work.

You may find it interesting to look for changes between the pencil roughs, color rough and the published cartoon - for example, the man seated on the right, the waiter and the brunette's belt.
