Don’t Just Store It as a File: 5 Ways to Display Your Digital Artwork

It takes effort and talent to create digital artwork. Let others see and enjoy your work, though. Read about ways to display your digital art here.

Whether you’re a professional artist or a dabbling doodler, you’ve had plenty of moments where you go to grab a pen, bottle of paint, or marker only to find that it’s all dried up. Then, you have to go out or wait days for new materials to arrive in the mail.

It’s still prudent to stay inside due to the pandemic, but that’s all the more reason that you don’t want to sit around waiting for art supplies to arrive. If you can’t draw or craft, what are you going to do to pass the time?

Digital artwork is an excellent medium for so many reasons. You don’t have to buy anything to make it, you never run out of supplies, and there’s no waiting involved. In this time of social distancing, viewing and sharing art online is a great way to bring people together and keep spirits up. 

Take a look at these five interesting ways to display digital artwork.

2. A Physical Digital Art Frame

If you prefer digital art because you don’t have enough room in your apartment for lots of art materials, a digital art frame is a great way to put digital art on your physical wall.

Physical frames that read SIM cards, are internet-connected, or are otherwise able to display image files give you an opportunity to display any and all of your digital creations as you can switch combinations of files to your heart’s content.

3. Your Very Own Virtual Art Show

Did you ever think you’d see your art in a virtual room? Museums around the world are offering online tours so people can enjoy their exhibits from the safety and comfort of their homes.
