CartoonStock is a searchable database of over 500,000 humorous and political cartoons, cartoon pictures and illustrations by more than 1000 of the world's top cartoonists, all available for instant licensing and download. Representing over 230 cartoonists including many greats published in Punch, New Yorker, etc. Based in the city of Bath in the west of England, CartoonStock was founded in early 1997 as a stock-house through which quality cartoonists could sell unpublished work, or work in which they had retained the copyright. We sell to large and small publishers, advertising, design and PR agencies and countless corporate purchasers and private individuals worldwide. As well as selling stock, they can also arrange the commissioning of artwork from almost all of their artists through their Hire an Artist service.
