One of the cartoons for the exhibition Cartoonists Beside The Surrealside opening this weekend, running from Wednesday 30 July until Tuesday 12 August at the Beach Creative in Herne Bay, Kent. Opening hours 10am-5pm.
Cartoonists will descend on Herne Bay for a day of live drawing at the Bandstand on the sea front, from midday until 5pm on Sunday 3 August.
Many were involved in the live cartooning event last year, which was part of a larger festival celebrating the centenary of Marcel Duchamp’s visit to Herne Bay. This year’s stand-alone cartooning event retains that art/surrealism link and is supported by Arts Council England.

The third and final cartoon of mine on show at the Pastiche, Parody and Piracy exhibition
The title for this exhibition was quoted from the government IPO copyright law forthcoming exception for parody, satire and pastiche. If this law is finally passed by the government, the act of subverting and appropriating elements of popular culture will be protected from large corporate enterprises that often seek to silence it through legal action and claims of ‘copyright infringement.’ We believe this is crucial for the future of appropriative art and satire, and although the law has been delayed, we are putting on this exhibition to celebrate artists, satirists and cartoonists who are paving the way.
Fasten your seltbelts, its going to be a bumpy ride.

Another cartoon from the Pastiche, Parody and Piracy exhibition.
Appropriation has long been a tool used in art, and has always been divisive in its understanding and acceptance. The pieces in this exhibition play with other people’s ideas and pre-existing works to showcase a selection of contemporary appropriation in art that is often mischievous, somewhat humorous, and often unsettling. It plays with what the viewer might be comfortable with and questions ideas of authorship and originality.

Today The Grapes Of Math by Alex Bellos is published in the USA by Simon & Schuster. Here's one of the illustrations by The Surreal McCoy.
“Bellos’s book is sprinkled with similarly surprising revelations about familiar mathematical objects ... Bellos has a fantastic knack of making you feel as if you’re sharing a room with these mathematical explorers” – New Scientist
"Another sparkling romp through the world of numbers, with the inimitable Alex Bellos as your friendly, informed, and crystal-clear guide. A brilliant successor to Here's Looking at Euclid."
– Ian Stewart, Professor of Mathematics, University of Warwick, and author of Visions of Infinity

From this week's edition of the Spectator.
"The unexplainable differentiates into unparalleled self-knowledge" From the inestimably fantasmagorical Random Deepak Chopra Quote Generator.
The website explains:
It has been said by some that the thoughts and tweets of Deepak Chopra are indistinguishable from a set of profound sounding words put together in a random order, particularly the tweets tagged with "#cosmisconciousness". Each "quote" is generated from a list of words that can be found in Deepak Chopra's Twitter stream randomly stuck together in a sentence.

One of the illustrations from Alex Through The Looking Glass by Alex Bellos, published today by Bloomsbury and drawn by The Surreal McCoy.
Think of the best storyteller you know and the coolest teacher you ever had, and now you've got some idea of what Alex Bellos is like. The book taught me something new on every page. Better yet, it made me laugh and want to tell someone what I'd just read. Math has never been so much fun.
