2017 has been another amazing year for Urban-Muse. On January 26th 2018 Urban-Muse will officially be 10 years old. That marks the 10th year from the date that I bought the Urban-Muse domains. So much has happened over the course of the past 10 years, and Urban-Muse has helped tens of thousands of artists expand their following and find new fans. Overall I feel Urban-Muse has really been a positive impact on the art world.

2017 was a big year for Urban-Muse because we launched our Online Digital Magazine through Patreon.




We have launched 3 issues so far with a fourth coming soon. After the fourth issue is out we are going to focus on getting these issues printed and out to readers, there will likely be a pre-order system and a kickstarter, and there will be something special for people who have supported on Patreon, likely a discount but maybe something more.

Every year we do this “Year End Special” where we highlight all the best pieces of art posted on our social media Channels, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr.


We would however be remiss without giving a special shoutout to all the artists who we have featured in Urban-Muse Magazine this year. Each of these artists has been producing AMAZING work this year and is worthy of your attention and follows. Without their participation the magazine project would not have been such a success. So a special thanks goes out to these amazing Men and Women!

2017 has also been a huge year for fanart for NieR: Automata with nearly every artist we’ve featured here doing atleast one piece at some time in the year. The effect NieR 2b, A2, and 9S have had on the art community is really unprecedented and it’s highlighted here first.

2017 also sees many returning artists from previous years like Ilya Kuvshinov and Guweiz, as well as many new faces who have been doing exceptional work.

The goal of these end of year features is to look back on what we’ve all accomplished this past year, to give each of these artists some special recognition, and to provide inspiration to other artists who may want to create art on this level in the future. Who knows maybe you’ll be on this list next year! I hope so.

Another very special thanks needs to go out to the Patrons on Patreon who have helped pay for this site to keep existing this year. Your monthly contributions help greatly and provide encouragement and validation to keep on keepin’ on.

Thank you all so much for your support this year and on into the future.
