Another wonderful write up, and video interview about the Wall of Joy mural in the Vancouver Sun. I was pretty exhausted as I had literally just finished the mural that day, so dont let my mellow demeanour fool you I was beaming with joy about sharing the mural with everyone. Thank you to everyone who is a part of it and helped make it happen :)

Today is final touches to the Wall of Joy! #jumpforjoymural #wallofjoy #Gastown #mural #jumpmural

This is it! Hope to get all the last touches done today (if my arms will hold out). I found a spot to add a couple more posters and I have to graffiti out the graffiti in my photos. I had no idea that having graffiti in my mural is illegal, the City of Vancouver has asked that I remove it. So, it ads another element to the mural. I will learn how to be an un-graffiti artist today :)

So close! The #jumpforjoymural is nearly done :) #gastown #Vancouver #publicart

I’m very close to being done the Wall of Joy mural :) This has been such a great experience that part of me doesn’t want it to end, but i know that there will be more wonderful things and joy-filled creations to come.

Please stop by and take a look at the mural 81 West Pender Street (corner of Abbott and West Pender St). If you post your pics to social media, please tag me or hashtag: #jumpforjoymural. #eyomural #wallofjoy #jumpmural or #jumpforjoyphotomural so I can find your photos and share them.

Have a wonderful day!

A few more days and I think I should be done the Wall of Joy mural :) This has been fun. Today is going to be a big challenge as I need to get close to the wall to work, but there is a giant billboard sign in the way… this should be interesting. Wish me luck!

Have a fabulous day!

First day putting up posters for Wall of Joy corner of Abbott and West Pender St. Vancouver BC Canada

First day of putting up posters is complete! This was the hardest part, should go a bit more smoothly from here on. Lost 1.5 posters. One from the wind getting a little too playful and the other when I hit a patch of water repellant cement, the poster just wouldn’t stick and ended up too wet with glue to salvage. Need to sort something out with that.

My body is really feeling it today.. Im super sore and covered in bruises! Its all worth it though :) and will be out there again today again (its supposed to rain today at some point, so will have to hold up if it does. The posters need to be dry until I paste them to the wall).

I’ll keep you posted on the progress.

Have a wonderful day!

It’s Hongoro the #jumpforjoy photo of the day! @EWMASTORE Aug 2, 2015

It’s Hongoro from Atira’s Enterprising Women Making Art program :) We had a great time capturing these joy-filled jumps for the Wall of Joy, look for her in the mural going up in a couple of weeks at the corner of Abbott and Pender Street in Vancouver BC Canada.

Have a fabulous day!

The jump of the day is Katy Mackenzie! @MackenzieKaty July 29, 2015

The lovely Miss Katy stopped by to say hello the other day while I was making posters for the Wall of Joy. This is her jump for joy from last year – beautiful! :)

Down to the last few days to get the posters done before starting to prepare the wall next week. A lot to do in the next couple of days.. here we go!

Have a wonderful day!

It’s the ZAG HeartBeats Team! #jumpforjoy @ZAGGroupHQ @IamSteveCurtis #zag #heartbeat #joy

I am super grateful to the Zag HeartBeats team for the generous contribution toward the Jump for Joy Photo mural. Thanks to the contribution for helping spread massive joy around the world :) Look for the Zag Heartbeats group jump on the finished wall!

Its my brother – Kwakwee Baker #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! July 16, 2015 #Vancouver

This is my brother, Kwakwee. Its pretty amazing to see him jump for joy, when almost 25 years ago doctors told him he may never walk again after a near fatal car accident. But my brother proved to everyone that anything is possible and here he is today, not only walking, but flying :) Proud of him and all he has accomplished and overcome over the years. Another jump of joy for the mural!

The absolutely stunning and loads of fun Miss Bianca Solterbec jumped for joy at magic hour on the green roof of Coal Harbour’s Cactus Club.

Her family immigrated to Canada from Germany when she was 6 years old and she is celebrating having the opportunity to grow up as a Canadian… (she will be featured soon, sign up for the newsletter to learn more about Bianca :)

So many photos turned out beautifully from this shoot it will be difficult choosing which one to put on the Jump for Joy Photo mural…

Time is passing by fast, please help me make the massive wall of JOY…

Todays #Jumpforjoyphoto of the day is Kelsey Wilson! June 30, 2015

This is Kelsey. I met her at one of the Atria Women’s Resource Society SRO’s. She was in right away when I asked her if she wanted to Jump for JOY for the mural. She even asked me if she could volunteer to help when I start putting the posters together for the 18,000 sq ft mural – before I even mentioned that I would need volunteers. I love her enthusiasm and excitement for the project :)

Please help me make it happen! I only have 2 weeks left to raise the remaining $11,590 to cover expenses for the mural. Make a pledge of any amount here and help spread massive JOY around the world.

Thank you and have an amazing day!

So cool… I was honoured when contacted by the super talented journalist Tao Sheng, Editor of Chinese Magazine – Rise Weekly. She has featured the Jump for Joy Photo Project and my fundraising efforts for the Jump for Joy Photo Mural 2.0 BIG JOY.

She discovered my project through my Instagram feed (social media rocks). We met up to chat about the mural, how people can get involved, and even be in the mural by pledging on the Indiegogo Campaign.

I was happy to share a few the fun pics of amazing people, doing good things in the world who have taken time to be part of the project so far. We even talked a bit about me doing a Jump for Joy mural in Beijing one day! :)

But first, I will need to raise the funds for the 18,000 sq ft Jump for Joy Photo Mural 2.0 BIG JOY I’m working on in the DTES of Vancouver. Right now, I have less than 17 days to raise the remaining $12,000 or, I wont have the money to create this epic wall of joy.

The #jumpoftheday is Tania Hamelton

I met Tania while recruiting some people to jump at the Dominion Hotel in Gastown, one of the SRO’s run by Atira Women’s Resource Society. She overheard us talking about it and said, that she wanted to JUMP – Yes! without even the slightest hesitation. When we met up for the jump we went off in search of a graffiti background, and found this spot together. After our jump shoot, she said she felt energized :)

And her jump photo will be in the Jump for Joy Photo Mural.

Would you like to do a jump for joy shoot with me and be in the mural too? You can! Check out how right here: http://igg.me/at/Lc-KC54o76I/x/53648

Hi!

I hope you are well and feeling wonderful!

I’m super excited and proud to share my Indigogo Campaign with you… I’m creating another gigantic Jump for Joy Photo Mural – it’s 2 times the size of the first one I made!

This is a heart felt community art project that will bring people together and spread joy all around the world.

I’m reaching out to ask for your support to create this joy-filled “Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural” on my Indiegogo campaign.

There are two ways to help:

2. Post to social media – the more people hear about the project, the more likely I can meet the target.

Sending you a big warm hearted thank you for helping spread the joy!

Todays awesome #jumpforjoyphoto of the day is Broderick Prairie Chickum! June 12, 2015

I love a spontaneous jump for joy like this one with Broderick in a Chinatown lane way. Even with an injured leg he got some amazing air time :) He has great energy, so fun!

Have a wonderful day!
