Graffiti women draw pictures on the wall

from the bbc website

Author JK Rowling scribbled a note to fans on a marble bust in the Edinburgh hotel room where she finished her final Harry Potter novel. The millionaire left the message after completing the book at the city’s five-star Balmoral Hotel. In black marker on an antique-style statue, she wrote: “JK Rowling finished writing Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows in this room on 11 Jan 2007.” The hotel confirmed the Edinburgh-based author signed a bust in the hotel. However the spokeswoman for the 188-room city centre Balmoral, where rates range from �290 to �1,575 a night, refused to say which room the author had stayed in. A spokeswoman for the author said: “We can confirm JK Rowling did write some of the book at the Balmoral last month and did complete the book at that hotel.”

leaving her tag on civic artworks, surely that’s no example to set the kids? 😉

*and no, that isn’t jo’s scribblings up there but it is a particularly entertaining piece of potter-related grafitti snapped by Btal

  1. Maybe it’s just me, but I hate the hypocrisy of the fact of “Who you are” means “How much you get away with”. For instance had some little poor street punk written anything on a statue and signed it his little ass would be in some BIG trouble with the law for “defacing” art.
