The results are in, Pinball Publishing's Scout Books are rad.
Thanks to Nicole (and the other friendliest people on the planet that are Pinball Publishing) for sending us the product of their collaboration http://www.society6.com/collab/Your_a...scout_book
with the talented Lloyd Winter http://www.society6.com/studio/winter
A Scout Book is a 100% recycled, pocket notebook with your art custom printed on the front and back cover using soy inks and choice of interior page design (I like the grid option).
We were lucky enough to receive a couple Chris Piascik http://www.society6.com/studio/chrispiascik
Scout Books as well, whaa!

Our friend Dave Brown, who founded Holiday Matinee http://www.society6.com/studio/holidaymatinee
in 1999, invited Society6 to appear in his first book, “I Swear to Good You Are God at This”.
We received our copy today, and it comes armed with 72 pages worth of killer ideas and inspiration.
As good timing and context would have it, Dave said they wrote the book, "to inspire people who might need an extra push to invest in themselves, do what they love and motivate as many awesome people as possible."
You can pick-up a special holiday-priced copy of the book thru Jan 4th http://supermarkethq.com/product/i-sw...od-at-this
After the new year, the price goes up!
Special thanks to Stephanie Schomer over at Fast Company not just for her support of Society6, but for some quality journalistic skills:
Let's keep the momentum going friends!
We're proud to announce that Society6 caught the attention of Alexa Fornoff and the Editors who curate ReadyMade magazine's "The Ten Spot"!
Check out Issue 44 (Dec/Jan 2010) page 25 and look for Spot 9 featuring the beautiful work of Matt Lyon a.k.a. "C86" http://www.society6.com/studio/c86
Thanks ReadyMade! http://www.readymade.com
In case you didn't notice, we've just posted a huge collaboration opportunity with EA http://www.society6.com/collab/10_Yea...s_The_Sims
What this means is, we're going to curate 10 artists who will each get to create an original work inspired by The Sims.
If it's not cool enough that you'll get to commemorate the first 10 years of the best selling PC franchise in history (it's that big)...how about the fact that the awesome folks over at EA are going to widely promote your work for sale right here on Society6!
Sounds like the making of a lot of eyeballs on your work and some dough in your pocket to me.
Don't miss this one, it's going to be good.
Another collaboration http://www.society6.com/collab/Cafe_R...Publishing
This time, Craig Atkinson http://www.society6.com/studio/craigatkinson
, who founded Café Royal in 2005, added the talented Gemma Correll http://www.society6.com/studio/gemmacorrell
to his stacked list of published and distributed zines and books.
As always, you can't have our copy, but you can pick-up your own beautiful piece of Gemma and Craig's work here http://www.caferoyal.org/index.php?/c...a-correll/
What do you get when you cross a handmade, ready-to-hang, quick-growing sustainable bamboo and FSC certified maple plywood panel with a thought-provoking designer, and drop-in some Portland, OR?
A 12x18" Plywerk by Gavin Potenza http://www.society6.com/studio/gavinpotenza
We're always happy to report back on things that take shape through Society6, and this collaboration http://www.society6.com/collab/get_a_...your_image
between Gavin and our friends Kjell, Kim and Johnny over at Plywerk is really fun.
For those of you that have not had the pleasure of of holding a Plywerk in your hands, let me tell you that it feels really nice (and the shipping packaging is very impressive too). The Plywerk crew provides an easy, sustainable, and no nonsense solution to get your photos and art displayed on the wall.
Here are a couple of photos of the Plywerk by Gavin Potenza that can be purchased from Gavin http://www.gavinpotenza.com/store/#emergenceprint
Or you can go to http://plywerk.com/index.php
upload your image, make your choices, and have your own work sent to you. You can also pick-up a couple Blank Panels and get lost: paint straight onto the panel, use them for mixed media collages, screen-print directly onto them, create an encaustic, etc.

Big ups to Ross and thanks to everyone that participated in the collaboration with our friends over at Vans http://www.society6.com/collab/Become...red_Artist
We've had some requests to showcase the quality of the prints coming out of Society6. We've also been pleased to see some great reactions from a few artists who have gotten their hands on some.

And here is a recent post from artists Lloyd Winter giving his reaction to seeing some prints: http://www.society6.com/studio/winter...ra_Quality
