What is it?
Urban-Muse Magazine is an ongoing quarterly digital art Magazine project by Urban-Muse.com. This Magazine has so far featured 30 of the best artists in the world. We interview each artist and ask them key questions about what makes their work so special, as well as tips and tricks to help you be a better artist yourself. Each issue features hundreds of pages of content with thousands of beautiful lush vivid pieces of artwork.
What do I get?
When you pledge at the $5 level, you will immediately be sent links to EVERY Urban-Muse Magazine Issue so far. Which comes to around 600 pages of content. More than many art books. You also get your name and a link of your choosing in the Patreon thanks page of the magazine. On the first of each month you are a pledge, the High Res 300 DPI versions of the magazines are sent out to the Patrons as well, in addition to the version you already have. Please note a new issue does not launch every month. By pledging to Urban-Muse monthly you are helping us pay for server charges, various fees like Creative Cloud, and ensuring the same high quality daily posts you see on social media never stop.

Q: (The most common question) "Will there be a printed version available?"
A: The answer is "Yes." Issue #4 is going to be the first issue we are going to try and print. We are going to crowdfunded it via Kickstarter, IndieGoGo or something similar. It's not 100% that the Patrons here on Patreon will get a physical copy as well, but I will try and crunch the numbers. I cannot promise it yet until I know the final dollar amount of this project, so I don't want to make promises at this moment. In the meantime the Patrons here will of course get the digital download like always and see early previews of the project as it's going on and get their names/link in the issue.
Q: How do I get featured in this?
A: Urban-Muse.com officially does not accept submissions. However if you're a good artist and have posted to the Facebook wall or submitted art on Tumblr we may have our eye on you. Furthermore you can be part of the magazine and help it grow by buying adspace. You get adspace in the magazine as well as social media posts, and ads on the website. More info here urban-muse.com/advertising.
Q: All these issues look great, which ones do I get if I pledge? This quarters issue?
A: You get ALL of the issues. There are three issues so far, Spring, Summer, Autumn, with Winter coming soon.
