There is this disheveled building on the corner, obviously Covid abandoned/neglected, and on the door was this notice from the city that they were gonna come down on the owner for being on contravention of the Graffiti By-law No. 7343!!  Evil building owner letting the city go to shit!!  Notice dated Aug 7/20.

 

So that weirdness, plus the bars on the windows and the cool, long lines and angles of the siding, made for the inclusion of the text that eventually turned into a kind of nonsensical stitching.  Decayed plant cause decayed plant, and the "matchsticks" in the upper right were taken from the supports on the in-construction building across the intersection.  7 of them, one for each month of Vancouver Covid days.  And the figure... well, yeah.
