Doug's First Full-Page Color Playboy Cartoon

Doug first full-page color cartoon was published on p.  205 in the September 1964 issue.  The image area of his originals is approximately 13 1/2 x 18 1/4; all have been rendered on Arches of France cold press art board using Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes.

Arches of France has produced high quality paper since 1492 in the Vosges region of France; in 2017 the company was granted the "Enterprise du Patrimoine Vivant" (Living Heritage Company) status by the French government.  Hermes, Cristalleries Saint-Louis, Baccarat, Chanel, DeBuyer and Garner Thiebaut have also earned LHC recognition.

The cartoon was also reproduced on p. 71 in The Art of Doug Sneyd, published by Dark Horse Books in July 2011.  The 248-page hardcover, also available in a softcover edition, features 270 of Doug's Playboy cartoons.
