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 :)

The #jumpforjoyphoto posters are up on the #wallofjoy a few last touch ups and it will be done! #Vancouver #art #mural

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 Lenora Gates #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! @lenoragates Aug 7 2015

Lovely Lenora, jumping joy in a beautiful West Vancouver cove. So fun.

#jumpforjoyphoto Mural update Aug. 6, 2013 – Ready to go… BUT 4 days of rain are around the corner #mural #jumpforjoy #gastown #dtes

Photos by Eyoalha Baker

IMG_0120

Im all ready to go! I have the posters ready, the lift ready, I’ve patched the largest holes in the wall, scraped down pealing paint and hammered down and removed rusted shards of metal and nails from the wall.. it’s a minor fix up job on a wall that needs major repairs.

However, I’ve made the decision to hold off on putting up the posters until next week as the forecast calls for rain 4 days straight as of Saturday. This is a tough decision as Im dying to get started. But, I don’t want to get half the mural up then have it rain for 4 days without being water proofed first.

So, I wait until the sun comes back next week… if the forecast is correct, my start date for the mural will be Wednesday :) Can’t wait!!!

It’s Cory – the #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! Aug 5, 2015 #Gastown #Vancouver

This is Cory, he works at the Dominion Hotel. He has great jumping joy style and will be sharing his positive energy in the Wall of Joy.

Mural making update:

Started doing repairs on the wall yesterday and barely put a dent in it. The wall will not be perfect by any means but I hope to patch up all the largest holes, Ive already scraped off the pealing paint and removed most of the rusted metal shards sticking out from the wall.

Today calls for rain so wont be able to finish the patch work until tomorrow. Hoping to start putting up the posters by this weekend, if the weather stays clear :) So excited!

Have a fabulous day!

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!

Check out his awesome art work: Kwakwee Baker Artist

Have an amazing day!

We made it! Thank you to everyone who pitched in – the wall of JOY is going up! #jumpingforjoy #JOY

We did it! Thanks to everyone who shared, emailed, donated, pledged, cheered, texted, liked and jumped. I ended up short 5k but thanks to a temporary loan, I’v passed the $15,000 goal on indiegogo! AND behind the scenes BC Housing has offered to contribute the other half of my total goal! I may also be getting another contribution from the city!!! So I’ve come in right on target with the full amount needed – the wall of joy is going up! Jumping for joy!!!!!! — feeling excited.

A massive and heart felt THANK YOU to everyone who contributed!

A very, very special thank you to BC HOUSING who are contributing half the funds needed to create this work. BC Housing will be contributing $15,000 towards the project! Jumping for JOY!

A heart felt thanks to the following group of people who all made generous contributions on Indiegogo (its not too late, you can still ad funds to the pot). Together we raised just over $10,000 towards the wall of joy! Thank You ALL for helping make this mural possible:
