Art & Life with Brian Fontenot

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brian Fontenot.

Brian, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
Everyone has a creative side to them, but often times we don’t know how to harness it. For me, my life plays out like a movie in my head. I can often see what I am building way before I even watch it manifest. Often times, I wouldn’t even realize that it was playing out in my head once I arrived. As I grew to understand careers that harness that creative energy, I was able to apply my talents and creative dreaming, to help tell stories that would connect companies with consumers or buyers of products and services. Thus in a way, I create art every time I get the opportunity to work with a new brand.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
When it comes to the art I am creating; each message is different. The focus is always to create stories that will resonate with the fear that you have inside of you, and how you can overcome those fears. I have seen that many of my friends and people I connect with on a deep level are often looking for ways to find a bridge. This bridge will take them from where they are currently to where they want to go. Every message that I tell and share awakens the strength inside of people to take action, today!

Artists rarely, if ever pursue art for the money. Nonetheless, we all have bills and responsibilities, and many aspiring artists are discouraged from pursuing art due to financial reasons. Any advice or thoughts you’d like to share with prospective artists?
Starting out anything is a challenge. But ultimately, the world has a special place for your talents. The hard part is finding out the path of doing stuff you love, but taking care of stuff that you don’t love to do. My advice is understanding who appreciates what you do and who benefits from it. The quicker you find your way of doing this, the faster you get to do things that you want to do. If you have to sacrifice sleep, social time, or other activities to get to doing what you love, or even have to work two jobs in order to finance your dreams, I have found that those sacrifices are all worth it in the end. Don’t let fear of finances rob you, just plan and adjust to how you can balance it.
