I have known Dennis Smyth for many years and he has always been an outstanding artist. He currently works as a tattoo artist in Philly, but does all kinds of other interesting things. I’m a huge fan of the coffee tables he does, often in collaboration with other artists. Being able to see them would be great motivation to keep one’s coffee table clean. The most recent time I ran into him, he was under a rigged up tarp system spray painting away in the drizzling rain. It’s always great to see some serious dedication.
