About The Cartoon Express
The Cartoon Express, originally launched in 2007 then revamped in 2010, is the brainchild of Andre Adams. After years of watching his collection of illustrations mount, Andre decided to consolidate them all and create an immense library of his work, available to anyone in need of quality cartoon art at ridiculously reasonable prices! Therefore, an e-commerce site made perfect sense.
Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1974, Andre's talent for creating artwork became apparent very early on, as one of his crowning achievements included winning first place in the United States in a drawing contest for Cricket magazine, in 1981 (beating out many kids older than him). This event pretty much left no doubt for Andre as to what he wanted to be when he grew up. This passion transgressed throughout his childhood and early adult life, as Andre would often succumb to the temptations of doodling in class, missing out on practical matters, such as the quadratic equation.
In 1992 Andre headed west to California where he attended art school in Los Angeles & received his Bachelor's in 1996, with an emphasis in illustration. Following his school years he began freelancing for newspapers, magazines, greeting card companies, ad agencies, local art directors and companies worldwide, taking
on a wide range of projects, from
children's picture books & gag
cartoons to caricatures & logos.
He would vary between
using traditional pen&ink
media to digital media
Flash, etc). An active
member of the artists'
community, he joined
the AIGA & National
and he attends Comicon
in San Diego & various
The Cartoon Express is by no means meant
to rival any of the giant micro-stock sites, such
as Shutterstock or IStock, as their sites have
millions of images, whereas The Cartoon Express
has over 1000. But here's the kicker: The Cartoon
Express offers only the finest quality images
- no cheap, kitschy clip art stuff - for a fraction
of the cost, and what artoon Express also offers is
the entire collection for just $30.
An incredible value you cannot find anywhere else!
