With Patreons help Urban-Muse is going to finally give you what you’ve been asking for.
URBAN-MUSE THE MAGAZINE
Once we reach our first goal of $500 we will release the first issue of the Urban-Muse magazine in .pdf, and eBook formats so no matter what your device it will look great. The magazine will give you a sneak peek at what’s coming up on Urban-Muse LONG BEFORE anyone ever sees it on Social Media. It will also include short editorials on trends and events relevant to the art world and interviews with some of your favorite artists. The first featured cover artist is Aleksei Vinogradov (Avvart).

After the first month of each issues release the Issues will be uploaded to the Urban-Muse.com website where they will be availible for free. But Urban-Muse patrons will get to enjoy them FIRST.
Initially the magazine will probably be put out quarterly, but if we get a good number of patrons it can be brought out Monthly.
In the Future… a hardcover book!
As the Urban-Muse patronage grows Urban-Muse also release a HARDCOVER BOOK. Ideally the book would be released annually and cover all the best artists and trends over the past year. The Books will be likely called URBAN-MUSE VOLUME ONE, VOLUME TWO…etc.
The books will be similar to our year end features but much more in depth and only using the highest quality source imagery directly from the artists featured. All artists featured in the yearly book will receive compensation as well.
More Art Shows
In the past Urban-Muse has put on gallery art shows, showcasing some of our favorite artists. This can be a huge undertaking and can be quite expensive and involved an amount of risk. Once Urban-Muse has a strong patronage, expect some of that money to help fund group art shows likely in the San Francisco, Los Angeles, and or New York areas.
Advertising and Promotion Options
As an added bonus to Urban-Muse Patrons, the Urban-Muse Patreon system will also be integrated with the Urban-Muse advertising platform.
