About CSL CartoonStock

Adey Bryant online shopping cartoon

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west of England, CartoonStock was founded in early 1997 as a stock-house through which quality cartoonists could sell unpublished work, or work in which they had retained the copyright.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, we can also arrange the commissioning of artwork from almost all of our artists.


Joel Mishon, Director

CartoonStock was founded and is still run by Ed Beardwell a new media consultant/developer, Engineer and Chartered Accountant and Joel Mishon, a professional cartoonist. Our close knit team has a wealth of knowledge of the cartooning industry and we can provide assistance with almost all cartoon sourcing issues.


Ed Beardwell, Director

CartoonStock was the first searchable cartoon archive on the web and the first to offer instant online licensing and downloading of printable images. We now provide more images online and a wider range of subject matter, artists and purchasing options than any other service. Our in-house staff of thirteen handles all elements of the business from cartoonist liaison and image acquisition, through image scanning, processing and cataloguing, to web development, client account handling, marketing and all back-office activities. By keeping all these skills and facilities in-house, we can offer unrivalled flexibility and speed of response to our clients and can ensure the business develops to keep pace with (or be one step ahead of) our market.

We now represent over 600 of the World's best cartoonists and our collection and cartoonists roster continues to grow rapidly. Our wide-ranging client list includes:
