Mick Whitcomb takes old objects like typewriters and scales and makes funky awesome light fixtures out of them. His wife Paige makes beautiful tintype photography.

Mick and Paige spend 300 days on the road with their dog, going to different art shows, setting up their booth, and making a living.

They are based out of Springfield, Missouri, but their customers are nationwide.

This is a fascinating story, and a business model that I had not seen yet.

We cover what it's like to be a traveling artist, how to get accepted into art shows, and what it's like to travel and work with your spouse.
