Klingbeil mentions Scott McKeen, running in Edmonton's Ward 6, who "doesn't have a campaign office. Instead, he has a campaign gallery." Now that sounds cool.
And she also mentions Calgary's Alderman Gian-Carlo Carra, who asked me to be his campaign's "artist in residence." I've been writing the occasional comic strip about what he's doing and posting it here on my blog. You can see these comics on Gian-Carlo's website, too. (And I just noticed this nifty graphic on his site: if you scroll over the drawing of Gian-Carlo, it changes to become a drawing of me holding an "Artist in Residence" sign. Well, you know, there are some things about politics I don't like, but I do like the way election campaigns... and great campaigners... can inspire people to work hard, be creative, and even have fun with things like website graphics!)
I just thought I'd mention this here, in case Klingbeil's article sends readers here to my blog. I write about other stuff here, too, but if you're looking for my campaign artist-in-residence comics, you can find them here.
Enjoy! Or... even if you don't enjoy, at least remember to vote on October 21st!
