Color Roughs: Christmas - New Year's Eve Cartoons

For a color rough, Doug typically xeroxed a final pencil rough (8 1/2 x 11 on standard copy paper) and then applied aniline dyes to the copy.  However, these 2 color roughs were hand-drawn on Arches of France cold press art board, which Doug used to render all of his full-page color cartoons published in Playboy since the early 1960s.

caption (December 2012, p. 87):  "Every year I leave Cookie out for Santa."

caption: (January-February 2014, p. 135):  "All I remember about last night was blowing on a noisemaker.  At least I think it was a noisemaker."

board size for both color roughs on Arches of France cold press art board:  10 x 16, art size:  approximately 8 1/2 x 11
