The Nate Houge Brand

I read this today:

Can’t help but wonder where the line between art and product is. I gotta figure out how to make a living but is product the answer? What if a touring t-shirt maker started selling CD’s on the side to support her business. We’d think that’s a little odd. (Of course, the first oddity being a t-shirt designer on tour…)

And some folks buy products to support the artists art too. So giving them a product gives them a way to support you. But does it cheapen the art? I kind of feel like it does, but I kind of would rather sell T-shirts at my shows than get a job at a coffee shop on the side.

So should I start putting products out? And if so what should they be? My gut says Nate Houge Fly Swatters, but I could be wrong. Maybe flesh colored Christ’s that glow in the dark? I think Bob Dylan would approve.
