pixiv is an artist social networking community.
"A place where creating is fun!"
pixiv was launched September 2007 and is an artist social networking community based in Tokyo, Japan. Focusing on supporting creativity, pixiv’s service started from the idea of “a place where creating is fun!” Members can upload their illustrations, comics, short stories, and share them with fellow members and fans alike. pixiv extends benefits for members by also holding exhibitions, printing publications, and attending events outside of the web.
