Rising Stars: Meet Colby Goon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Colby Goon.

Colby, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Art was always my way of expressing myself ever since I can remember. I believe that my creativity and ambition has brought me to where I am now. Keeping a positive mindset definitely has helped the most because I’m the only person that can control my destiny.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Art as a career path that can be very discouraging because it’s not always consistent. There’s times along the road I questioned if I made the right decision, but what keeps my going is the love I have for what I do and I can’t see myself doing anything else. I’m thankful I have a good following of people that support my work.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I make art and I have a clothing line. I’m more known for my clothing, I’d say, but I feel like they go hand in hand. What sets me apart from others, I’d say is my genuine love for creating.

Do you have any advice for those just starting out?
My advice for anyone starting out is to have a clear vision of what you want to do. I get asked a lot, “How do I start?” and my answer is always START. People often times have an idea but never act upon it. Don’t be one of those people, you have one life to live do what you want with it.

I wish I knew when I started out as a creative that sometimes you can’t do everything by yourself. You as a creative are a business and not every creative is a business person.
