Default Artist At Large



I haven't participated in the Friday Art Show in some time and figured I needed to make a showing... with somebody else's art, of course. One of my best pals on earth has been busy painting sculpture as of late. It's roots stuff... and it's wonderful...

McPhail's been on my list of appreciated artists for a while now. Really damn impressive stuff he does.

Now he's sculpting his own knobs? Dang, what can't this guy do?

Lot of appreciation for Dennis, hardworking guy, that provides for his family while doing what he loves. If you're reading this man, thanks for all the life lessons you taught a gullible 16 year old before he left home.

See you in Salina.

I bought one of his shift knobs and a signed original from him about 10 years ago. His art is definitely COOL.

I've dipped into my wallet quite a few times for original McPhail pieces. He's truly a blessed talent, and humble as can be. Definitely pretty stoked to have him as a friend.

Dennis has been one of my art heroes since way back in the Halibrand days...He was even kind enough to render my little hot rod for the HAMB Drags shirt a few years ago.

McPhail doesn't suck.

I know it's all good natured humor but I've never sen any evidence that Dennis "sucked". Quite the opposite.............seems to be a really talented guy and has built some really cool cars along with the art.

Long story... really long story... BUT, the Cliff Notes:

Dennis is largely responsible for me being me... Meaning, he taught me a lot about specific styles, life, and just being a good parent. He got me where I needed to be during a stage in life when I needed his guidance... He's a good friend... family... and I owe him a lot. I love him.

In any case, I can say with 100% confidence that there wouldn't be a HAMB if it weren't for Dennis McPhail.

Dennis is a RULER and when we went to his open house in the roadster p/u in the rain (someone else from KC would not drive a coupe in the rain....hehe), I bought some prints and he wanted to know how we were getting them home (3 hours away) and gave us some trash bags to wrap them in and he signed them. I told the wife if she ever had any more tattoo work, that ONLY Dennis could do it.....
