The Surreal McCoy reports from the Hey Wayne! cartoon show.

Off to Manchester for the weekend and a treat in store at the Richard Goodall Gallery in the city centre, where four cartoonists were exhibiting their unique takes on the theme of cartoons and art.

Not only was there artwork aplenty on the walls but the assembled crowd were also treated to some stand-up cartooning, as Tony Husband, Bill Stott and Bill Tidy took to their easels and let rip.

A surprise was in store for Bill Tidy. In honour of his 80th birthday and the Cloggies of yesteryear a rather fine clog cake was produced, bells included. Old at 80? Tripe!

The Hey Wayne! cartoon art show opens this weekend at the Richard Goodall Gallery in Manchester.

Enjoy a sneak preview of three of the contributing artists at their Procartoonists portfolios which you can find, here, here and here. Chris Madden, Bill Stott and Tony Husband will be joined by Bill Tidy, about whom you may learn here.

The show is billed as a “gentle poke at the pomposity of the art world”. We don’t know about that but we do think it will be funny.
