Emily Wong

It turns out Emily Wong (Ninja vs Penguin) is obsessed with hair! Whenever she’s feeling really stressed she busts out the graphite – haha I love it. The hair in this first drawing actually belongs to Ophelia Chong, small world!

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

    Hey Ophelia!

    Even your hair is famous now? What about your “capillatus pubertas”. Will those be immortalized too? Some previous boyfriend must have a photograph of it somewhere……

Animation: Yeasayer “Silly Me”


Another fantastic video by New Media Limited for Yeasayer. “Silly Me” is the prequel to “I Am Chemistry”, and both have a wonderfully strange animation style. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
