Since cartooning is certainly a form of Art, I thought some of you might be
interested in this.

The Cartoon Bank

No one should doubt that, since the 1920s, "The New Yorker"
has published the funniest and wittiest cartoons in the
business. The magazine's archives contain tens of thousands
of great cartoons by the likes of Charles Addams, Peter
Arno, Saul Steinberg, William Steig, James Thurber, Gahan
Wilson, Roz Chast, Jack Ziegler and others. They're all
being made available online at The Cartoon Bank, "the
largest searchable cartoon database on the web." You can
search its vast archives for your favorite cartoonist, or
send e-cards, or buy prints, t-shirts, and even original
cartoon artwork. Its Cartoon Channel pop-up offers an
ever-changing parade of cartoons on your desktop. Recent
cartoons and cartoonists are more heavily represented than
some of the "classics," in part because it takes time to
scan them into the database. The goal is to have them all
available and searchable online. The search engines works
great, by the way. I found a favorite Charles Addams
cartoon in one try!
