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.

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?"

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.
Chef Anthony Bourdain gained celebrity notoriety after the publication of Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly in 2000; his popularity continues today with his CNN food and travel show - Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.

Doug has been a cartoonist for Playboy magazine since 1964.
For nearly 20 years, starting in the mid-60's, his "Doug Sneyd" and "Scoops" news cartoons appeared daily in newspapers across North America. Sneyd's talent has also led him into cinema: in 1993, he wrote, produced and directed "Black-eyed Susan," an educational movie-drama about spousal abuse, for the Ontario government. He was a founding member of the Canadian Society of Book Illustrators and has been a member of the National Cartoonists' Society and the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. Thirty of his full-page color Playboy cartoons are among the 235 Sneyd works included in the National Archives of Canada in Ottawa.
Sneyd was born in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, but spent much of his professional career in Toronto. In 1969 he moved his family north to Orillia made famous as the mythical "Mariposa" by humorist Stephen Leacock. He works on the third floor of his home-studio overlooking beautiful Lake Couchiching and spends his winters on the Gulf Coast in Orange Beach, Alabama.
