I met today with Councillor Bailao, and the Director of the Public Realm, Elyse Parker, in the city hall members lounge, just off the council chamber. I had to pass through the full council chamber, everyone including the mayor was there to debate some bicycle lane issues. I was in a brand new suit that had fell in my lap earlier in the day!
The councillor left the debate to meet with me. It was once again a friendly and informative meeting. They let me know that the July 28th meeting will be somewhat of a referendum for or against my mural. Attendees will receive a questionaire of some sort, and can express their approval or disaproval. I was also told people could express their opinions on line. The councillor will speak first to go over how we got to where we are, and then I will have the opportunity to present my vision for the wall.
I am working on the designs with a very talented graffiti writer named AMOS.
I will release my first official drawing on Friday.
This drawing will appear on the flyer for the meeting to be distributed in the community.
I hope that the merits of the work will speak for itself.
