Custom can and mural designed for Deron Williams

You won't be able to avoid Deron Williams the next few weeks (months?) if you enter Barclays Center from the east. A new mural by graffiti artist Tristan Eaton fills the wall of the old Bergen Tile building at Flatbush and Dean. The building will soon be torn down for a six-story apartment building.

And if you avoid that but are a Red Bull drinker, you'll see the same mural on custom cans the energy drink is selling around New York . D-Will worked with Eaton on the design and said he was "blown away" when he saw it on the can.

Asked about his impressions of D-Will, Eaton said, We got to hang out a little bit, get to know each other a little and that was pretty awesome. I think that we’re completely different people with completely different lives, but we share the same kind of dedication to this thing we love: for me, it’s art, for him, it’s his sport."

The mural went up on Tuesday night. Atlantic Yards Info, a local watchdog group, posted it on YouTube.
