caption:  "Looking for a midnight noisemaker?"

Approved - "OK color page H" in black Sharpie - loose-style color gag rough; full-page color cartoon published in the January-February 2013 issue (p. 107).

early pencil rough (image area:  7 7/8 x 10 on heavy tracing vellum) to block out the characters and set the scene

follow-up pencil rough (image area 7 1/2 x 10 on heavy tracing vellum)

later pencil rough refining details to the main characters; all of Doug's pencil prelims were hand-drawn

Over the years, Playboy published close to 500 of Doug's cartoons -  all were rendered on Arches of France cold press art board using Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes.  Image area:  approximately 13 1/2 x 18 1/4.
