Artists have never had an easy time turning a profit from their work, and in the age of digital art, it’s become harder and easier at the same time. Artdst recognized that there had to be a simpler, more customizable way to show and monetize digital art online, so they are creating a new platform to help.
Think of Artdst like Etsy for digital artists. It will allow you to present your art beautifully using unique themes, it will charge subscription fees for admirers, collect ad revenue, let you run your own store or connect with fans and businesses who are interested in commissioning work. They know not all art is image-based, so they are working with beta clients to figure out how to showcase different types of digital art like video, music and more. (GIFs, anyone?!) If successful, Artdst will give many artists a chance to showcase their work on their own terms, rather than a one-size-fits-all solution.
While the site is currently under development, you can sign up to be one of the first to gain early access to the beta platform when it’s ready.
