The artist's checklist for making an impact in 2020

The artists’ life is all about making an impact and it doesn’t matter whether you’re a painter, illustrator or designer, you want to influence peoples’ lives. Have you ever considered how to do this? How to make your art mean something to the world? It might be that you haven’t. Then this article should give you ample ideas to use.

Whether you’re an illustrator, a graphic designer or a traditional painter, you could potentially learn some new processes to implement in your way of working.

Create as much as possible
Making art isn’t an easy process. And when you’ve finally finished a piece, you then need to explain it to the world. What it means, why you made it… By going through this as much as you can, you get your art known to a bigger public. Create so much people can’t possibly ignore you.

Inspire an emotional reaction
When you create, you probably go through a whole scope of emotions. Bring those emotions to life through your art pieces. Get people to feel what you feel as an artist, make them connect with your art. By inspiring an emotional reaction you’ll leave a mark in the minds of everyone who sees your work. Thus impacting their lives in ways you never would have imagined.

Make use of different tools
As said above, you need to make art as much as you possibly can. But you can’t forget to get creative with the ways you actually make it. Here are some useful tools you can pick to create your pieces:

● Paper: this is probably the (besides a stone wall) oldest tool in the book. But still a great one to create with. Use a pen, paint or chalk and simply let the art flow out of your body. You can make gorgeous designs just using this medium.

● Multimedia: not quite satisfied with the possibilities paper has to offer? Then go digital and see what programs like Photoshop or Illustrator have got to create with. The potential outcomes are numerous when taking art a step further by going digital.

● Raw materials: maybe drawing or painting doesn’t feel right. But making real things by using the body can be a transcendental experience. Pick raw materials to make a new construction that will surely leave people thinking.

Using printing equipment is essential
After going through the whole creative process of thinking up an idea and eventually executing it, it needs to be brought to the world. It’s not always possible for everyone to see the work in person. To actually ensure that it makes an impression, make a portfolio and print it by making use of a specialized printing service. Leave it at places connected to you and your art to let others discover what you made.

Build an online portfolio
Printing your portfolio and leaving it in interesting places is a unique way to show the world what you’ve got to offer as an artist. But why stop there? Make use of the wonderful space that is the Internet to show off your work to the entire world. You’ve got no physical borders to hold you back from influencing others around you.

Make social profiles
Building an online portfolio with a website is a valuable way to let the world taste a bit of your palate. You could even take it a step further by creating social profiles. Instagram, for instance, is a surefire way to get your work out there and noticed. It not only gives you the opportunity to show off your creations but also gives people a peek behind the scenes. Take them on a journey through your creative process to open their eyes to the wonders of art.

Engage with people
Showing off your work in a portfolio is a great start. But to make a really mean something you should engage with people. Try to exhibit your art one way or another, might that be in a real life gallery or on a portfolio website, like mentioned above. This gives you the opportunity to connect with everyone that sees your art. So you can explain why you created this piece and actually make others understand. The more you engage, the greater the impression your art will make.

Teach others your ways
Teaching is one of, if not the, best ways to impact the lives of countless others. You have a gift, so why not help others find theirs? Let people get to know the face behind the work, the personality that brought those pieces to life. And in the process teach them something they will remember their entire life.

It doesn’t matter what kind of artist you are. If you use one of these ways to get your art out there, you’re going to make an impact no matter what.
