David Stoten (born in Luton, Bedfordshire) is a short film maker and caricaturist on TV's Spitting Image. Stoten won the BAFTA award with longtime collaborator, Tim Watts in 1994 for The Big Story.

Since then, Stoten has provided storyboards for, amongst others, Tim Burton's Corpse Bride, Mr. Bean's Holiday and the award-winning TV series Charlie and Lola.

Credited as one of the "Spitting Image team" (under Roger Law), Stoten provided the cover to 2007's QI "E" Annual, as well as contributing incidental illustrations alongside such other cartoonists as Newman and Husband from Private Eye, Viz's Chris Donald, Geoff Dunbar, Ted Dewan and The Daily Telegraph's Matt.[1] Stoten has since supplied caricatures to the "F", "G" and "H" editions and is an ongoing contributor to The Oldie.

As a sculptor, Stoten has provided many maquettes for the animation film industry whilst also sculpting an exclusive range of Gorillaz figures for the designer toy company Kidrobot.

Stoten was recently Head of Story for the Elton John produced Animated Feature Film Gnomeo and Juliet and currently is the Creative Development Lead at Arc Productions (formerly Starz Animation) in Toronto.
