What is Cartoon Movement?
Cartoon Movement is an online platform bringing together more than 500 professional editorial cartoonists from all over the world. We publish editorial cartoons daily.
Do you pay your cartoonists?
Yes. We pay for the daily cartoon we publish on our home page and we share the revenue of all cartoon sales made through this website with the artists.
I'm an editorial cartoonist, how can I get involved?
We'd love to have you on board - our application page is here.
I love your cartoons - can I publish them on my site?
No. We are a community of professional artists, who depend on their cartoons to earn a living. You can easily purchase a license for the use of our cartoons, with special rates for personal and/or non-profit use. You'll also have the benefit of knowing your purchase supports a cartoonist somewhere in the world.
What is a cartoon license and why do I need it?
When someone creates something they own the intellectual property rights; he or she decides who has the right to use their work. A license gives you the right to use a particular cartoon in a particular way.
We offer ten licenses, ranging from a simple license for digital use only to a full license allowing you to use the cartoon in print and online with worldwide distribution rights. All our licenses are valid indefinitely, meaning you will not have to worry about it expiring.
Our licenses are clear and simple and should fit almost any need. Just choose the appropriate license, and download your cartoon(s) in high resolution immediately.
How can I pay?
Once you have made a purchase we will send an invoice to your email address. Our invoice contains all the necessary bank account information to send payment via electronic bank transfer. Payment is due within 30 days after the purchase. We do not accept checks.
You can also request to pay via PayPal or credit card.
Where can I find the cartoon I purchased?
After completing your order, you can download the high resolution image file by going to your account (click on 'account' in the top right menu when you are logged in ) and clicking on the tab 'Purchased cartoons'.
Click on the image you want to download, then right click to 'save image as' and save it to your computer.
Who do you not charge VAT?
Cartoon Movement is a journalistic platform. In the Netherlands, some journalistic endeavors are exempt from the obligation to charge VAT.
Can I get a cartoon on a topic of my choice and/or an artist of my choice?
Yes! If you can't find what you are looking for we offer the option of commissioning one of our cartoonists to make a cartoon based on your brief, which can be delivered within 24 hours if needed.
We also offer the option to make use of our entire network of cartoonists. If you would like a series of cartoons on a specific theme or news event, we can ask our cartoonists to draw about this. You get to select the cartoons you like best from the work that is sent in.
