The thought of something spontaneously turning into a monster sounds potentially frightening, but that isn't the case if artist Dan Smith is involved. His signature "spontaneous monsterfication" technique results in designs reminiscent of Saturday morning cartoons that are fun, colorful, and sure to put a smile on your face. He monsterfied the fire hydrant in front of Wuxtry Records, rightly located close to Bizarro-Wuxtry, the comic arm of this corner. See it as you drive towards the intersection of Clayton St. & College Ave.
Dan is another local artist who has been a huge contributor to the promotion of water conservation and stormwater management. His monsters have graced the outside of numerous rain barrels for the annual Roll Out the Barrels event.
