Hi everybody, today we are here with the founder of “It's Art” (http://www.itsartmag.com ).
Hello Patrice Leymarie, first I want compliment with you for the work you done on the site which always offers interesting material and is a benchmark for many cg artist (and not only).
Can you tell us how is "born" this project?
IT’S ART is born 9 years ago. The first version of the website was a PDF Magazine in French and English. The goal was at this time to provide something about CG Artists, every two month but focusing on the creative process with In depth interviews. Years afater years, working alone on the project, I had to make some choices regarding the way to distribute the content : On the website or in PDF. The websites has changes a lot, I’d created a Gallery ( Cg Gallery ) a forum and after many changes the site has become what’s it’s now, a source of inspiration for CG Artists, without any advertisements, supporting artistic project via its own crowdfunding service and developing projects as master classes.
I guess it's very challenging to deal with IT’S ART. Do you have collaborators?
I manage almost alone IT’S ART since 9 years and I’m teaching two days / week at the same time. Sometimes, some people have helped me to support the website with some content, but most of the time I’m working alone on the project. Today, one of my former student is helping me with the Master Classes for some logistic and creative parts :-)
