"Sam Hester's Ramsay," 2012

I live in this great neighbourhood called Ramsay. When I was invited to be part of a cool initiative called "Project Calgary" documenting the city's neighbourhoods, I was more than happy to write a comic strip piece about Ramsay! (That piece is at the bottom of this page.) And then, that Ramsay comic strip turned into a new idea - a monthly strip for the community newsletter.

November strip is up here now! I can see I'm going to have to redesign this page to accommodate the lengthening list... stay tuned.

Here's a link to an exciting project going on in Ramsay: the 23rd Avenue Artwalk & Street Celebration. It just took place on September 22nd and it was a hit! Thanks to all of those who took part!

This neighbourhood is full of artists and creative people (in particular, it seems, a lot of architects, graphic design and media people). Although Ramsay is one of Calgary's oldest neighbourhoods, it's a bit of a secret. Right now, it seems to me that there are a lot of exciting things going on in Ramsay that might start to put it a bit more on the map. Maybe I'll have a chance to write about that stuff in here, but for now, here is the comic strip.
