018 Brandon Darnell Stephens


I am Brandon Darnell Stephens, an illustration student at The University of the Arts. In 2015, I got the chance to be an extra on the set of “Creed.” The object that I chose for the project is a background I.D. card. My object represents Philadelphia and cinema history in a major way because it’s linked to the beloved “Rocky” sequels. My favorite place in my city is the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and my favorite features in my city are the iconic “Rocky statue,” and the “Rocky steps.” I have a close connection with my city because of it’s love of the arts that makes being a Philadelphian so special.
