Politicians: Doug's February 1988 Playboy Cartoon

Since politicians, polls and primaries are dominating news media coverage, I thought Doug's February 1988, p. 123 Playboy cartoon would be of interest.

caption:  "I've been here eight years, and I've never noticed any difference 
between Democrats and Republicans."

The full-page color cartoon was also reproduced on p. 13 of The Art of Doug Sneyd, published by Dark Horse Books in 2011 and nominated in 2012 for an Eisner Award in the Best Humor Publication category.

Doug's preliminary development work is done by hand; at times, though, he saves a step by xeroxing the final pencil rough and then working this up for the color rough.

However, for the February 1988 cartoon he did a hand drawn color rough (artwork size:  8 1/4 x 11 on lightweight tracing vellum).

February 1988 cover - I thought you'd enjoy looking for the Rabbit logo.
