CARTOON BANK -- WORLD'S FIRST COMPUTERIZED CARTOON DATABASE -- OFFERS THOUSANDS OF CARTOONS BY NOTED ARTISTS

 CARTOON BANK -- WORLD'S FIRST COMPUTERIZED CARTOON DATABASE --
 OFFERS THOUSANDS OF CARTOONS BY NOTED ARTISTS
 YONKERS, N.Y., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Remember the funniest cartoon you ever saw? The one you were still laughing about the next day? Where is it?
 Bob Mankoff knows. He's the founder of The Cartoon Bank, Inc., -- the world's first computerized cartoon database. Within a few hours, he can fax you a selection of cartoons on virtually any subject -- and get you permission to print them.
 Drawings from The Cartoon Bank's publishing division can be used to illustrate press releases, newsletters, brochures, books, flyers, posters, ads, menus, presentations, programs, and reports.
 A licensing division headed by Mankoff's partner, Sondra Zell, grants permission for use on greeting cards, calendars, T-shirts, and other promotional items, and also sells prints or original artwork. Cartoons can even be customized for clients.
 The Cartoon Bank's thousands of zany drawings include the work of more than 30 artists, all regular contributors to magazines like The New Yorker, Omni, Time, National Lampoon, Harper's and Esquire.
 While the majority of requests have involved current economic concerns, queries have included "alternate dispute resolution," "ducks", and "snack food". "No matter how unusual or complex a request may be," Mankoff says, "we'll find a way to fill it."
 Reproduction-quality artwork of any selection, sized to fit a layout, can be sent to a computer by modem, faxed, or delivered by mail or Federal Express. Prices vary according to category of use, beginning at $150.
 Cartoonists represented include Jack Ziegler, known for his ground- breaking originality; eclectic Roz Chast, a frequent New Yorker contributor; former Emergency Room psychologist turned classic gag cartoonist Tom Cheney; zany Mike Twohy; lifeguard, river boat banjo player and cartoonist John O'Brien; and absurdist Frank Cotham.
 The Cartoon Bank's artists are so prolific, Mankoff says, that many have hundreds of cartoons they've yet to publish. "Until now, there was no way an editor could access the bulk of this work," says Mankoff.
 How did he illustrate "alternate dispute resolution?" Call 914-965-8216 and The Cartoon Bank will fax you illustrations.
