Above: an animation by Procartoonists.org member Paul Baker, commissioned for (and projected at) the launch of the new InterContinental London Westminster hotel. Inspired by its location, the hotel is politically themed and features a gallery of cartoons by Gerald Scarfe alongside other political caricatures.

Fellow PCO member Ian Baker is one of a number of international cartoonists who have contributed artwork to a new book about 007. Ian has also written a foreword for James Bond: 50 Years in Caricatures. The book is seeking crowd-funded contributions in order to be released in special-edition hardcover format.

The Daily Cartoonist has posted a 1986 TV interview with Gary Larson, creator of The Far Side. Watch it here.

A new online reality show, Strip Search, is pitting a dozen cartoonists against each other.

Finally, cartoonist and illustrator Stephen Collins has produced a series of designs for the Time to Change campaign to end mental health discrimination. Some of the work can be seen here, and several of his designs can be sent as e-cards by clicking here. Collins comments on the campaign here.
