Shark Toof, Philadelphia + Venice Beach

Shark Toof recently hit NYC and Philadelphia, and his work is getting bigger and better.  The top two images are from Philadelphia;  Shark Toof says:

“Measuring 10 feet by 25 feet, painted in pouring Philly rain with old house paint, dried out brushes, a cup of water, a hard hat to keep the rain out of my eyes, and a trash bag over me to keep me dry…total time. 4 1/2 hours to completion…Thank You Philly.”

The bottom image is from Venice, California;  the shark is 4ft X 8ft, and the waves are hand painted.
