DANIEL BLUE: MEET TOBIN ROPES >>>

Tacomafilestobinropes Tacomafilesart Tobin Ropes is a modern American Cosimo Medici. The Medici were a powerful and infinitely rich banking family that influenced much of the best periods of Italian art. Without the Medici family; patrons to both Leonardo and Michelangelo, among many other greats, we would have no Notre Dame, and the names of all four Ninja Turtles would make little sense.

Tobin, who was swindled out of an incredible wine empire he helped to build, is currently a tea man. Yes, in the same way Daniel Plainview was an oil man, Tobin is a Tea Man, it is profitable and progressive and a whole hell of a lot better for the environment. 

Pictured here strolling across the deadly Commerce LINK tracks to the park benches across the street from the manifestation of his love for tea, Mad Hat Tea Company, Tobin is preparing to pour some strange concoction of God knows what euphoria inducing leafy juices to the denizens of the sunshine that gather here on Saturday afternoon. Tobin is a classic, there are only two of him in the whole wide world, and we here in Tacoma are the proud owners (yes OWNERS) of both of them.

Few people love art and support artists as much as Ropes Family. The Mad Hat Tea Company will host For The Love of the Cosmos syncopated pandemonium art show Thursday, Aug. 7, from 5-10 p.m. Come get your hippy on.
