Some topics we discuss are:
What is Brian’s Painting process?
Where does he come up with ideas for his painting and what does it mean to “inspire”?
How to work through failures on art projects?
Why did he choose the medium of painting?
How to face rejection early on in your career
The importance of routine in the creative process and strength in repetition
And the piece of work that Brian is most proud of
