  • Doug Sneyd

As well as having hundreds of full-page color cartoons published in Playboy magazine since 1963, Doug Sneyd has enjoyed success in artistic pursuits including textbook and magazine illustration, portraits and editorial cartoons. For nearly 20 years, starting in the mid-60’s, his “Doug Sneyd” and “Scoops” news cartoons appeared daily in newspapers across North America.

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. Twenty-four of his full-page color Playboy cartoons are among the 229 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.
