However, Goodan was still riding in local rodeos whenever he could, so realizing that hed never get cowboyin out of his life, chucked his art career and vowed to stick to painting cowboys. Goodan became friends with most of the Hollywood cowboys including Buck Jones, Tom Mix, Roy Rogers and Gene Autry while painting the latters comic books and Sunday features. Tills art career was on the rise as his western cowboy scenes were eagerly bought and used by everyone from calendar makers to stationary companies to Wallace China. He designed the cover for Ed Bohlins famed Hollywood saddlery and even received a commission for a 30 by 80-foot mural, which was the centerpiece of the Los Angeles Union Stockyards.
Sadly, Till Goodan died in the saddle as Grand Marshal of the Tulare, California Rodeo in 1958. He is best remembered as one of the most important cowboy illustrators of the 20th century. He signed his work two ways: Til Goodan and Till Goodan.
