PETALING JAYA: More creative netizens took up the The Star Online’s challenge to give their own fun-filled "politically-correct" take on Ernest Zacharevic's graffiti in Taman Molek, Johor Baru.

The original piece showed a knife-wielding man waiting at a street corner for his female victim.

However, due to criticisms that the artwork depicted a crime-ridden place, Zacharevic used his Facebook page and uploaded an edited version via photoshop by replacing the knife with a bunch of flowers.

Zacharevic, who gained fame locally for his works, including the Bicycle Boy drawing, in Penang, had also painted two other pieces along Jalan Ros Merah in Taman Johor Jaya here.

Below are 10 works from our netizens:
