A reader has sent us pictures of art by David Zinn, an artist from Ann Arbor, Michigan. He decorates mundane and uninteresting public infrastructure with colored chalk to create little street fairy tales.  An idea for you, WCB and Destination Waikanae members if you want people to visit the town centre?  There must be a talented local artist who’d be willing to do this in return for a small stipend?

David Zinn’s most famous creation is undoubtedly a little monster called Sluggo. Sluggo has a green body and long, round eyes.
