Andrew Hem

I was absolutely blown away when I came across the work of Andrew Hem while browsing Steve Kim’s site. There aren’t too many illustrators out there with such a wide variety of styles in their arsenal. Some pieces are quite loose and painterly, and others are really crisp and precise.

You know those portfolios you come across and there’s maybe one or two images? Yea, this is pretty much the opposite of that – you’ll be here for quite awhile:


Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    His colour choices are amazing as well. I’ve looked at his work a bunch but never saw that first image. Beautiful!

    He just came out with some limited edition prints. Not too pricey, and well worth it.

    Andrew Hem is amazing. I have been into for a while. I met him at Thinkspace a while ago, uber nice.

    im often apprehensive about meeting artists i like because if they’re a dick to you it makes it hard to like their work after that. on the flip side it makes it that much cooler when the person is even more rad in real life

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
