Playboy February 2008 Issue: Wonder Woman on Cover, Doug's Cartoon

Playmate of the Year 205 Tiffany Fallon portrayed Wonder Woman on the cover of the February 2008 issue.


(Earlier, Doug did a Wonder Woman cartoon that was published on p. 111 of the October 1981 issue; it was also reproduced on p. 29 in The Art of Doug Sneyd.  The 248-page hardcover book, featuring 270 of Doug's Playboy cartoons, was published in 2011 by Dark Horse Books and nominated for 2012 Eisner Award in the Best Humor Publication category.)


caption:  "Tonight I'm looking for a good guy."


His full-page color cartoon in the February 2008 issue appeared on p. 91; it was also reproduced on p. 111 in The Art of Doug Sneyd.

caption:  "I already have a husband.  I'm just looking for someone who wants to be my valentine."


This is the approved gag rough for the cartoon published in the February 2008 issue/notice changes made when "working up" the finish.


Early pencil study.

May 1997 Playboy Issue: Donald Trump Article, Doug's Cartoon

After months and months and months of speeches, debates, interviews, tweets and polls, the Iowa Presidential caucuses on Monday, February 1st will start the countdown to the Tuesday, November 8th U.S. Presidential election.

Donald Trump - the businessman, reality TV star and politician - has made headlines for decades so I was naturally interested to read - The Art of THE DONALD - in the May 1997 issue of Playboy (pp. 88-92, pp. 162-166).



Doug's full-page color cartoon was published on p. 83.

caption:  "Care to access my V chip?"

Politicians: Doug's February 1988 Playboy Cartoon

Since politicians, polls and primaries are dominating news media coverage, I thought Doug's February 1988, p. 123 Playboy cartoon would be of interest.

caption:  "I've been here eight years, and I've never noticed any difference 
between Democrats and Republicans."

The full-page color cartoon was also reproduced on p. 13 of The Art of Doug Sneyd, published by Dark Horse Books in 2011 and nominated in 2012 for an Eisner Award in the Best Humor Publication category.


Doug's preliminary development work is done by hand; at times, though, he saves a step by xeroxing the final pencil rough and then working this up for the color rough.

However, for the February 1988 cartoon he did a hand drawn color rough (artwork size:  8 1/4 x 11 on lightweight tracing vellum).


February 1988 cover - I thought you'd enjoy looking for the Rabbit logo.

Nov. 1988 Playboy Issue: Jessica Rabbit - Dragon*Con photo - Doug's cartoon

The cover of the November 1988 issue, featuring a stunning Jessica Rabbit, immediately reminded me of how much fun Doug and I had at Dragon*Con in 2012.  (He was a featured guest.) 


The annual 4-day Labor Day weekend convention - held at 5 major downtown Atlanta hotels, including the Hyatt Regency - draws some of the best cosplayers in the U.S.



Doug's full-page color cartoon in the November 1988 issue was published on p. 169;  caption:

"He has two distinct personalities - one chases women and the other watches football."


Look for changes and additions from this pencil rough (7 1/4 x 9 on heavy tracing vellum) to the published cartoon.  Hint:  eyebrows, frog and . . .
