[216] Dave Gibbons, Watchmen Graffiti on the South Bank, July 28th

Next Tuesday, July 28th, in conjunction with the release of Watchmen on DVD and Blu-Ray, Dave Gibbons will be appearing at the Skate Park on London's South Bank, to oversee a graffiti art piece inspired by the graphic novel. The piece will be created by Chu, an artist whose work is full of crazy style, flair and detail, as well as playful uses of perspective and dimensions (more on his Flickr)

The skate park is one of my favourite little landmarks in the capital, and it will be interesting to see what Chu will do with the Watchmen universe, so I will most definitely be going down to the event. With Dave Gibbons in attendance as well, this looks like a great event to check out. It runs from 2-5pm that afternoon. I've posted an excerpt from the original press release below, with the raw details.
