||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 WESTERN HORSEMAN and LEATHERNECK magazines, and LEANIN TREE greeting cards. I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in art education in 1972. 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.

In March of 2013 Graphic Classics Publishing will release a new book written and illustrated by Native Americans titled "Native American Classics". I had the privilage of illustrating one of the stories.
Exhibition: November 9-24, 2013, the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art at the Saint Gregory's University campus in Shawnee will have Regional Art Exhibit featuring art inspired by recycling and created by Oklahoma Artists. I'll have a western color piece in the exhibit. Opening Reception: 7pm Friday, November 8. This event is free and open to the public. Hosted by friends of the MGMoA.
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."
As of September 2012 I will be a regular cartoon contributor in the Citizen Potawatomi Nation's monthly paper HowNiKan. They will be military oriented cartoons for a general audience, so that even non-military or veterans will be able to relate to them. It should be fun.
