An artist and storyteller living in southern Maine, I am also the creator of the Handdrawn MFA Project, a self-guided education in illustration and visual storytelling. I am originally from the west coast of the United States, and count Philadelphia as a second home. I've lived in 3 countries, 5 states, 14 cities, and 26 dwellings. I think - I may have forgotten some! I love vivid colors, ethereal artwork, incredible adventures, intriguing stories, folklore, the woods and magical settings.

Philadelphia, PA by Alison Murray Whittington

Maine, US


I've had the good fortune to live in many cities and visit many more, and Philadelphia is one of my favorites for both. Its weighty history and vivid present have packed it chock full of historical and modern attractions, quirky surprises, and singular delights for visitors and locals alike. Spend the days visiting countless Museums or strolling through leafy parks and down quiet residential streets and then live it up at night on Second or South Streets. There's something for everyone, and it's almost all within walking distance.
