Through our recent Collaboration with GOOD magazine http://www.society6.com/collab/The_GO...er_Project
four Society6 members were selected to create four different covers for the latest issue of GOOD, The Neighborhoods Issue (on newsstands in April). The idea was to represent in simple fashion the diversity and distinctive aspects of different neighborhoods around the globe.
Please join us in congratulating Lorin Brown http://www.society6.com/studio/oneanddonestudio

, and Valeriya Volkova http://www.society6.com/studio/valeriyavolkova
for nailing the covers!

You can also purchase the cover artwork as a variety of products from the GOOD Collection here http://good.society6.com/
Society6 has teamed up with Urban Outfitters to bring you the Print Shop on urbanoutfitters.com.
Our position at S6 is simple, the artist should be in control of the rights to their work, and set-up to profit from it on their own terms. When an artist can make one Post on Society6 and make that artwork immediately available for sale through a number of high profile channels like Urban Outfitters as the highest quality collectible products available anywhere, then we are putting the artist back in control.
With more Partners coming soon, Urban Outfitters will continuously curate the Print Shop with a selection of their favorite pieces from the Society6 community.
To check out the work from some of your fellow artists, please visit http://printshop.urbanoutfitters.com/
If you are an artist who would like to be eligible for the Print Shop, or for other Collaborations with Society6, all you need to do is register http://www.society6.com/register
and start to Post your artwork.
Growing stronger every day, the Society6 Publisher Network brings the most revered art websites and blogs together with the artists of Society6 to forge a content-based promotional network.
FOR THE ARTIST:
This means that Popular Posts from Society6 members are automatically showcased on the homepages of hundreds of websites - this is one more effort that we're making to get you the exposure that you deserve.
All you have to do is Post your signature work, nothing more.
FOR THE PUBLISHER:
Grade-A quality Artist created content (our Popular Posts) gets fed straight into your site through our embeddable content widget. See some of the Top Publishers participating in the network from our homepage.
Your site (your custom banner) then gets promoted through the Society6 Publisher Network of sites on rotation with the creative content that is curated by the Society6 community of Artists. The more impressions you bring the Publisher Network through your widget, the more your own site will be promoted through the rest of the network. The more you give, the more you get! The more Publishers that join, the stronger the network gets, and the better for everyone involved.
If you are a Publisher (blogger or website owner) and wish to inquire about joining the Society6 Publisher Network, please contact us here: http://www.society6.com/help/contact?type=4
If you know of a great blog or site you want to recommend for the S6PN, please feel free to let them know, or send us your suggestion too.
Like all things at Society6, it is our intent to create something of value for everyone involved and we appreciate your participation.
You may have noticed a few changes to Society6 recently, or you may just have the odd feeling that something is different but you can't quite put your finger on it. Well that's because we've made some tweaks to Society6 and here they are...
First off we've whitened the background to open things up and let the site breath a bit. You'll also notice larger images on the homepage - so much more fun to view and promote! On the right side of the page we're now highlighting exciting Collaborations and Collections, such as Secret Places with Urban Outfitters.
Collections are quickly becoming a key part of Society6. We've done a few so far and will be doing many more. The goal of Collections is to organize and promote your artwork all over the web, by working with curators, bloggers and other partners. Collections will include your existing artwork and also be composed of original themed work as in the case of Kitsune Noir Poster Club, Portland Prints and the collection resulting from Urban Outfitters Secret Places.
Once again we'd like to thank you for your continued participation. It's an honor and a pleasure to have so much great work posted by so many creative people from all over the world.
2 months ago marked the beginning of a collaboration with EA http://www.society6.com/collab/10_Yea...s_The_Sims
and 10 members of Society6 who each created an original artwork to commemorate the first 10 years of The Sims.
EA is now proudly promoting the resulting Collection to millions of fans worldwide through various marketing and pr initiatives!
Please join us in congratulating the artists and check-out the work of all 10 here http://society6.com/studio/thesims/store
Just connected with Joseph over at GOB magazine http://www.society6.com/studio/gobmagazine
and when I received Issue #02, I couldn't help myself from sharing what happens when self-published creative people embrace change (as in each printed issue of GOB is different in size, finish and price) and print as their medium.
Issue #02 Features some familiar faces including:
Printed twice a year (with digital issues in between), Issue #04 is in the works now. You can pick-up a copy from GOB direct http://www.gobmagazine.com

We wanted to highlight Kitsune Noir Poster Club happening here on Society6. We teamed up with Bobby Solomon over at Kitsune Noir to put this together and we're happy to report it has been a real success.
For this first round of posters Bobby asked five artists to interpret books they really enjoy into a print that will be a lasting work of art. The first collection of poster artists include Frank Chimero, Mark Weaver, Jez Burrows, Cody Hoyt and Garrett Vander Leun. If you haven't seen the collection already head over to the Studio and take a look: http://www.society6.com/studio/kitsunenoir
You can also check out Bobby's interviews with the artists over on Kitsune Noir: http://kitsunenoir.com/?s=society6
