Surf’s up!  I’m so excited to have Drew Brophy’s art licensing story for a number of reasons – first and foremost so I can stop hounding him and his wife about it on Twitter. (@DrewBrophy @MariaBrophy)  I was beginning to feel like a pest but knew we would want his story and as you will soon see – I was right!

From Surfer dude to licensed artists – Drew’s story is different than many because he has found a way to build a successful business with more of a niche style.  Not one to paint the traditional wine or Santa designs, Drew’s art stems from the surfer style.  What began with him painting surf boards, broadened into other areas that make perfect sense for the market – beach towels, hats, boogie boards, even tattoos.

Without further ado – here is Drew Brophy’s art licensing story.
