It's that time of the year again, this is the best art shared on the Urban-Muse social networks (mostly Facebook/Tumblr) in 2015!

This is now the fourth year I've done this, and every holiday season taking the time to go through the many thousands of fantastic art pieces shared this year really is quite exciting. Putting this together always takes me a few days and many many hours, it's more work than you might think, but when I go back years later and see what I picked out for that year it's like a time capsule or a time travel machine and it reminds me alot of what was happening during that period in time.

Noticably absent from this best of list is any Star Wars pieces, the new movie was amazing and totally reconquered the world, but I want some time to pass before we start to really see how these new movies are going to affect fan art and the art world in general.

In other Urban-Muse news, One idea I have been toying around with is writing a book with several pieces of art from around 50 of the best artists around. I would want to be sure to compensate each of the artists financially, so it would be quite expensive. I may crowd fund it and self publish, do it through a publisher, or maybe not at all.
So many people ask me if there is a book, or if Urban-Muse is a magazine. It's not but I think having this kind of art as something you can hold in your hands, put on your shelf or leave on your coffee table would be something alot of people would really enjoy. We'll see.

I also want to get more into interviewing my friends and favorite artists. Similar to the pivotal piece I did with Chiara Bautista a few years back. I would expect interviews and features with artists like Jace Wallace, Tom Bagshaw, Ilya Kuvshinov, Irakli Nadar, and many more of the top tier artists  you have come to expect to see when visiting Urban-Muse.

This year there are alot of familiar new faces as well as some new ones as well, like Irakli Nadar, Iris LaFontaine, and Ruby kim.

Many of these artists I actually consider my friends and I talk to them about art basically daily, depending on how vocal I am on social media, and nothing makes me happier than seeing an artist start up a facebook page and helping them gain likes and amass a following.

I get a little emotional every time I write one these, and this year is no exception. Personally I don't have the greatest life in the real world, but Urban-Muse, my friends in the Arts, and the fans who support me and the site really are probably the best things in my life right now. So I thank you all. And as always, until next year...

MAKE ART. PAINT THINGS. BE AWESOME.
