Daryl

For the past 35 years, Daryl has been one of America’s most prolific cartoonists. He worked for 15 years with Jim Henson’s Muppets, illustrating scores of books, magazines, calendars, and all manner of products. Daryl still sees pigs, frogs, Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock characters when he closes his eyes.
Daryl worked for many years as an advertising illustrator, doing cartoon campaigns for such clients as Discover Card, McDonalds, Sega and General Foods Post Cereals. Daryl drew a syndicated comic called “True!” in the 1990’s for Tribune Media Services. He worked as the editorial cartoonist in Hawaii, then drew for the Washington Post’s Slate.com site before ending up as the cartoonist for MSNBC.com.

In 2001, Daryl started a new syndicate, Cagle Cartoons, Inc. (www.caglecartoons.com), which distributes the cartoons of sixty editorial cartoonists and fourteen columnists to more than 850 subscribing newspapers in the United States and around the world, including over half of America’s daily, paid-circulation newspapers. Daryl is America’s most widely syndicated editorial cartoonist.

Daryl is a past president of the National Cartoonists Society and the National Cartoonists Society Foundation.
