The Clowns at City Hall (2016 Edition)
Clowns have been invading! First the US, then other parts of Canada, and now Calgary. They’ve been showing up on Instagram, Facebook and twitter, looking to scare the crap out of people, and to troll of course. There’s even a Facebook vigilante YYC Clown Hunters overreaction group that was setup, who have sworn to stop them and save Calgary from their evil .. tweets, or whatever. It occurred to me, what if city council were to join up with these killer clowns? What would that even look like? Clowncillors, if you will, hiding in the bushes and looking to cause a 3am ruckus? I can see that happening, so I thought I’d be proactive and see what they would look like if they did.
I’m not going to say which clowns are which. See if you can guess them all. I bet there’s at least 1 only a few people will guess.
Some are obvious, some not. Some are just ‘original clowns’ from me mucking around, to mix it up. Or I couldn’t find any other good source material, or I tried and using said clown it looked like crap (ie. Bozo the clown). Also wanted to do Twisty the clown from American Horror Story, but everything I tried looked terrible and didn’t fit.
Anyway, on to zee Clowncillors. All in good stupid internet fun.
I hope they like it.

Yes I know there’s two Jokers.
I tried doing the Jack Nicholson and Caesar Romero versions but I wasn’t happy with how they turned out on whichever of the Clowncillors I was messing with. I had also thought about clowning up Daorcey, or some other politicians but never got around to it.
As of 2019 a lot of these people are no longer in office haha. Oh well.
