Doug's Remaining Convention Inventory Now Available on eBay at both DougSneydArt and empire.auctions

For more than 50 years, freelance cartoonist and illustrator Doug Sneyd has had close to 500 full-page color cartoons published in Playboy magazine - with fans attending comics-cartoon conventions looking through thousands of his hand-drawn, loose-style gag roughs, pencil and color prelims and illustrations of delightful, gorgeous ladies.

However, after 10 years of exhibiting at conventions across the United States and Canada, much of his remaining inventory is now officially available on eBay through the brand new account DougSneydArt, based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida as well as long-time seller empire.auctions based in Ringgold, Georgia.

We are pleased to continue working with Jeff O'Bryant and welcome Steve Lipsky, who will be listing nudes under the Adult eBay category.  We trust that visitors to these two eBay sellers can feel confident that the weekly listings of Doug's work are legitimate.  eBay has some seller limits on new accounts, but rest assured we will add new artwork as these limits increase over the coming months.  The new account will go live with its first round of listings on Thursday, February 11, 2021.

Listings may offer:

• personalized copies of Unpublished Sneyd, The Art of Doug Sneyd (Dark Horse Books) and Secret Sneyd:  The Unpublished Cartoons (Dark Horse Books)

Playboy preliminary pencil and color roughs as well as Hef-approved gag roughs

• original 10 x 14 and 11 x 17 artwork, rendered on Arches of France cold press watercolor paper using Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes

• sketchbooks and limited edition prints

Artwork posted on the Doug Sneyd Premium Gallery at www.comicartfans remains available; new listings of remaining convention inventory will be listed on eBay at DougSneydArt (nudes) and empire.auctions (non-nudes).

July 31, 2021 - UPDATE:

For DougSneydArt on eBay, we had hopes to list up to ten new art pieces every week.  Unfortunately, for the foreseeable future, we are able only to add new pieces as older pieces sell.  eBay's restrictions on new accounts limit the dollar amount that we can list to $25,000.00.  And we've now reached that limit.  So as currently listed art sells, we can list new pieces to replace them.  But until we reach the next selling milestone eBay has set for us, we are unable to add anything beyond that.  We appreciate your understanding and will keep you informed as to when we will again be able to list artwork on a weekly basis.  In the meantime, there are several nice pieces listed under both DougSneydArt and empire.auctions for fans to peruse.
