The greatest basketball game I ever saw just happened to be the most important. I was watching alone in a hotel room in Indy, (sorry to everyone on my floor) on the phone with my Dad as Jenkins hit the shot. Unreal!
This piece commemorates the 2016 National Champions, the Villanova Wildcats. The date, score and opponents from every game are handwritten to create “The Shot”.
Prints are available on the Gallery and Shop page .
Thank you to the Philadelphia Flyers for having me create the design for the t-shirt given to all fans at Game 4. It was an honor and thrill of my career seeing 20,000 fans wearing a word art t-shirt! The artwork is made up of quotes by the late Ed Snider, the names of players and coaches on this years team, along with words about the Flyers.
Thanks to everyone at Breakfast on Broad for having me on last Friday (3/18). In case you missed it, here is the video from the segment I was featured in.
If you haven’t checked the show out yet, I suggest you turn on The Comcast Network one morning between 6-8 AM !
I’ve created a one of a kind word art drawing to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of Big 5 basketball. The original piece of art will be on display at the 18th annual Coaches vs. Cancer® Tourney Tip-Off Breakfast at the Palestra on Monday, March 14th.
I meticulously hand wrote the dates, teams and scores from every Men’s Big 5 game ever played to create the historic Palestra, the center of Big 5 basketball over the last 60 years. Prints of this piece are available via
website (www.phillywordart.com) and proceeds from each sale will benefit the American Cancer Society.
To help celebrate Victory Brewing Company’s 20th anniversary, I created a word art just for them by hand writing the names of many of the beers they have brewed over the years. No Victory Beer was consumed during the creation of this piece. The same can’t be said after it was finished.
While listening to the speeches Pope Francis gave and talking with people far more knowledgeable about the Pope than I, I decided instead of using his words, he would prefer that I create the piece using the original source of his message (Matthew 5-7 aka the Beatitudes aka the Sermon on the Mount). Being that he is a Pope of the poor and those in need I am donating proceeds of each sale to Philabundance.

About Philly Word Art
Local artist Daniel Duffy created Philly Word Art after the Philadelphia Phillies won the 2008 World Series.
