Philadelphia is home to over 1.5 million people. All who live, work, and coexist Seamlessly. Often we forget or overlook the animals that also call this city home. "Local Critters" is a series of murals depicting these animals. The juxtaposition of painting these smaller inhabitants on such a large scale acts as a playful way to raise awareness of their presence in our environment.
Animals have no political or religious ties, and the personification of such interesting creatures beutifully conveys what the "city of brotherly love" can call each other, neighbor.
