Hi, I am Iva [ee-v-uh], the founder, and the host of Art Side of Life.
What is Art Side of Life?
Art Side of Life is a YouTube and podcast Interviews show dedicated to inspiring you to pursue your passion in life and take action to make a living as an artist. It is the perfect companion for your commute to school, work, or while you are creating.
Art Side of Life was created for YOU, the artist with a huge variety of creative passions. Your host Iva chats with the most exciting and inspiring artists and creative entrepreneurs of today like Loish, Cyarine, Gabriel Picolo, Tod Polson, John Nevarez, Jason Brubaker, Trent Kaniuga, Asia Ladowska, Eliza Ivanova, Jake Parker, Nathan Fowkes, Stephen Silver and Marco Bucci (see all interviews here). They are extraordinary achievers who put a lot of effort into their work – illustrators, painters, graphic designers, comic book artists, animators, art directors, 3D artists, and many, many others.
Each episode presents the journey of a successful Artist who shares their personal background, their art style, medium, tools and also strategies how they make money and stay motivated in their projects. For the ones of you who are just starting, the guests also share what they learned from their mistakes, and the action steps to achieve success. Each episode ends with the highlights and the summary of Artist’s resources so you don’t have to take notes of the valuable pieces of information.
Why did I decide to create Art Side of Life?
“Turn your passion into a profession!”
I love learning from other people, listening to podcasts and watching YouTube interviews with inspirational people. I discovered there is not much of the content created about and for artists. It was this desire, why Art Side of Life was born. I decided to create a place that would allow people around the world to have access to all the Artists stories, tips, ideas, and concepts. Place where we inspire each other, learn from each other and improve every day together.
“I created Art Side of Life to help YOU, aspiring artists to level up in your passion and become successful doing what you love!”
Whether you want to stay up to date, motivated or just not sure which way to go in your art career, this is the place for you. I want to show you different ways how to make a living as an artist. Whether it is working for an animation or gaming studio, freelancing, selling your art in galleries or being a creative entrepreneur.
“There are endless possibilities for living a creative life”
You need to know that you are not alone in this journey of becoming a great artist, a someone who is passionate about their purpose in life.
I want to give you a chance to spend time with inspirational and successful people with the same passion as you and me, because as Jim Rohn (the motivational speaker) once said:
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”
Never stop improving and let’s help each other to succeed.
Subscribe and we can inspire each other to take action to get over to the Art Side of Life.
