From the very beginning we were always inspired by the idea of collaborations occurring organically on society6. We support creativity (obviously) and we want to foster opportunities of all kinds, mainly because we want to see more art getting made in this world.
Recently and during our initial private beta phase our new friend Kelly Williams | http://www.society6.com/kellydwilliams and my wife Tatiana Wills | http://www.society6.com/tatiana were introduced to each other's work through the site and decided to do a photoshoot of Kelly for his new book, coming out soon. Today they did the shoot and had a blast. Much thanks to Kelly and his wife for cooking up some good food and sharing their creative spirit. Tatiana is processing the digital shots and will be posting a preview soon, so stay tuned. We're looking forward to some info from Kelly on his upcoming book as well.
We also want to encourage everyone who joins society6 to follow this example and spark collaborative projects from within society6 or use society6 as a tool to run them. The Studio feature is in fact a great way to host a virtual collaboration, like a group project. There can be many members of a studio and they can all post, so it's perfect for a collaboration where different artists riff on the same theme or idea. These are just a few examples and ideas, as creative people I'm sure all of you can come up with more and we look forward to seeing them in the future. thx jw
