Derek Powazek has just launched his wonderful new service Pixish, a way to find creative people for visual assignments. People who have a project in mind for an artist can create an assignment, artists then submit their work, which the community reviews and then winners are selected, receiving prizes and rewards. The service is somewhat similar to Threadless, but not limited to just one product. Here’s more info on how it works.
Derek has even posted his own unique assignment Pixish where he’s looking for illustrators to create a Leaf in the River Tattoo for his arm.
UPDATE 1: Derek tells the story of how Pixish was born.
