|Welcome to Daryl's Corral of Cartoons!
I'm Daryl Talbot, Cowboy Cartoonist. My cartoons and illustrations are used in magazines, books, T-shirts and greeting cards. My work is seen regularly in LEATHERNECK magazine and LEANIN TREE greeting cards. I cartooned for WESTERN HORSEMAN magazine for 45 years. I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in art education in 1973. I was a member of the National Cartoonists Society for several years, but now I'm an emeritus member of Cowboy Cartoonists International, and the Academy of Western Artists. In 1997 I received the Will Rogers Cowboy Cartoonist of the Year Award from the Academy of Western Artists and 1st and 3rd Place in the all Navy cartoon contest in ALL HANDS magazine in 1975. There's 4 books collecting my cowboy cartoons published by Pelican Publishing Co. and New Forums Press. After serving in the Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force Reserve, Army Reserve and Oklahoma Air National Guard, a 5th book is now out collecting my military cartoons from '70s to '09 from New Forums Press. The title is LAUGHING IN CADENCE. These cartoons appeared in LEATHERNECK MAGAZINE and SOLDIERS. Look for my books at Amazon.com. Ask for books by Daryl Talbot.

Just returned from the 2016 CCI (Cowboy Cartoonists International) Rendezvous at the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch just outside Sandpoint, Idaho. Beautiful country goin' to it and comin' home from it. It was a rewarding get-together for all of the Leanin' Tree Greeting Card cartoonists. Can't wait 'til next year's rendezvous.
In March of 2013 Graphic Classics Publishing released a new book written and illustrated by Native Americans titled "Native American Classics". I had the privilage of illustrating one of the stories.
July 23 to July25, 2015, Leanin' Tree greeting cards company hosted a fun business gathering of Cowboy Cartoonists International in Boulder, Colorado. It was great to see the old members and meet the new ones. There's nothin' funner than a bunch of cowboy cartoonists gettin' together for fun and business. Humor is our business.
Saturday, 9 April 2016 I'll be demonstrating and selling my cartoon books and prints at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art during their annual Arts Trek event on the at St. Gregory's University in Shawnee, Oklahoma. It is free and open to the public. There will be artists, musicians, dancers, poets, and actors from all genres. Free fun for the whole family.
The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art will be having a special art exhibit featuring Oklahoma artists, myself included, in an effort to help the hungry using art work with the theme "Doing What We Can to Help". It will be running from 7 November to 22 November 2015 at the museum on the Saint Gregory University's campus in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Please visit and show your support.
I was initiated into the western life at an early age on my grandfather's primitive Oklahoma farm. No electricity, no in-door plumbin',an outhouse, farming with horses, wood stove heating and cooking, and a one-room schoolhouse. You Know? The Good Ol' Days! I am proud of my Choctaw heritage from my great great grandmother who refused to register with the U.S. government because she said, "They took the babies."
