In San Francisco based artist Joel Daniel Phillips’ art, the characters living in his neighborhood are brought to the center stage and become the hero of their own story. His graphite and charcoal drawings feature people on the streets who generally go unnoticed by the public, or are virtually ignored, only to become celebrated in his monumental works.
