Great news! At the Cowboy True Western Art Show I received First Place in the Cowboy Cartoon Category. It was a fun and busy weekend. I won with the cartoon captioned: "Dear, this is the best show in three counties!" You can see the winning cartoon on my photo page. Check it out.

See you there!
I had a great time at Leanin' Tree in Boulder, Colorado with my Cowboy Cartoonists International friends in August 2017. We had a business meeting to decide on our next year's meeting place, Witchita Falls, Texas on April 13 and 14, 2018 at the Cowboy True Art Exhibit and Auction. It should be fun. We also voted in 2 new members to our Cowboy Cartoonists Internation group, Pepe Villasenor and Wheeler "Slim" Hughes.
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.
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."
