OFI 1625: How To Turn Artistic Ability Into A Full Time Career | A.W. Erwin | Hooves & Horns “Cowtoons”
A.W. Erwin is a syndicated "cowboy cartoonist" with a quick wit and funny personality. He has been drawing cartoons of cowboys and cowgirls in funny situations for decades now, and this is his form of "off-farm income".
Making his home in north central Texas, he is immersed in the cowboy lifestyle knowing people far and wide who are preserving the old ways and arts of cowboying. To keep his commute as a short walk from his house to his studio, A.W. has developed a line of products he sells as well as services. He has mastered "re-purposing". A drawing he made yesterday might become a coffee mug tomorrow and a calendar next year.
A.W. made his first appearance on the Off-Farm Income Podcast in 2015, and he is back today with more inspiration and advice for artists who don't know how to turn their passion into a full-time business.
