Playboy Cartoon: Final Pencil Prelim, Color Rough - May 1994

caption:  "Not only did she resign, but she sat on the photocopier 
and faxed her whatsit to a hundred of our subsidiaries."

All of Doug's nearly 500 full-page color Playboy cartoons have been rendered on Arches of France cold press art board using Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes.  

board size:  approximately 14 5/8 x 19 3/8, art size:  approximately 13 1/2 x 17 1/4

Final pencil rough on heavy tracing vellum; image area - 7 1/2 x 9 3/4

For a color rough, Doug typically xeroxes the final pencil rough and then applies aniline dyes to "test" color selections before going to final art.  (When in his studio working on the finish, notice he moved the Sneyd signature logo slightly to the left of the plant.)
