Fabio Moon and Gabriel Bá launch Wallstrip at the Southbank

By 17 July, 2010

On Friday 9th July Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba, two of the hottest comic book artists in Brazil, took on the challenge of designing a large-scale comic strip to be shown at the Southbank Centre until the end of Festival Brazil on Monday 30th August. The project, which used local artists and young people to help draw and come up with ideas, is based on a comic strip that the duo regularly write in Brazil which features animals discussing politics and highbrow chatter. These are a few photos from the first day, when the goal was to design the whole strip, in the sheer heat of a London summer day.
