This is my original drawing of the William Penn statue at the top of Philadelphia City Hall.

At the top of City Hall is a 37 foot, 27 ton bronze statue of William Penn, the founder of Philadelphia. The statue was made by Alexander Milne Calder. The Penn Statue is the tallest statue atop any building in the world. It faces Northeast towards Penn Treaty Park in Fishtown, where Penn signed a treaty with the local Native American tribe (Lenape/Delaware). There was a “gentleman’s agreement” that forbade any building from being taller than the brim of Penn’s hat. However, that agreement was broken in 1987, when One Liberty Place was built. This break of the agreement supposedly put a curse on all local sports teams.

Using pictures as reference, I drew this using a Micron Pigma pen, Tombow Marker, and graphite on Arches hot pressed watercolor paper. The drawing is roughly 7 x 10 inches (17.78 x 25.4 cm).

This is the perfect small gift for a native Philadelphian, a lover of architecture, or a person who wants to have an original piece of art on their wall.

The prints are amazing! They came carefully packaged and arrived in perfect condition. I love having a little taste of Philly on the walls of my home :) Alleanna’s work is incredible! She is also very sweet and worked with me to ensure my order was correct. Not to mention, it was sent out the next day and arrived super quick! Thank you so much again!

I have this hanging in my office and no exaggeration- everyone who has seen it has a comment! Actually, a compliment about the bright vibrant blue and just the nostalgia of eating Krimpets growing up. I put the print in a black frame with a white matte and the color just pops. I recommend 💯 !
