In addition to Playboy preliminary pencil and color roughs, limited edition prints and sketchbooks, Doug will have both 10 x 14 and 11 x 17 watercolor originals for sale in Washington, D.C. April 18-20.
 
These 10 x 14 colorful, "loose"-style originals are rendered on Arches of France 100% cotton, 140 lb watercolor paper using Dr. Ph. Martin's aniline dyes, used for his Playboy originals since his first published cartoon in the September 1964 issue.

Playboy Gag Rough Rejects: April 15th IRS Deadline

With the IRS deadline to file 2013 taxes only a few days away, I thought these 2 Playboy gag rough rejects were appropriate to share.
 
Since Doug's first full-page color cartoon was published in Playboy - September 1964, he's submitted thousands of cartoon gag roughs to the magazine.  Of course, not all can be selected for final art and ultimate publication.
 
So, enjoy these undiscovered Sneyds!

Martin's aniline dyes, which he's used for ALL of his Playboy originals since his first full-page color cartoon was published in the September 1964 issue.

First Commission at Pensacon

Doug is always busy with commissions at conventions; Anthony, an exhibitor at Pensacon, talked with Doug about an hour before the 3-day convention opened to the public because he had to be at his booth throughout the day.
 

He returned at the close of the first day and was . . . pleased with the commission!

Seville Quarter Hosts Pensacon Special Events

Pensacon organized a busy weekend event schedule for convention attendees, artists and exhibitors:  movie screenings, gallery night specials, an improv show, live bands, nerd karaoke, costume and dance parties, etc.
 
Seville Quarter in downtown Pensacola, Florida hosted the Welcome to Pensacon 80-90's Party Friday evening, February 21 and a Bunny Party Saturday evening, February 22.  Doug talked with attendees throughout the evening and also signed 11 x 17 limited edition prints - with all proceeds from sales donated to the Manna Food Bank, which operates 6 pantries in Escambia and Santa Rosa (Florida) counties.
 

Cocktail waitresses at Seville Quarter joined in the fun at the Bunny Party!


Pensacon reproduced Doug's Blond in Green Bikini original for the convention's fundraising effort assisting the Manna Food Bank.


During the Bunny Party, Doug talked with attendees, personalized his 11 x 17 prints and posed for photos.
