    These are really cool!

  • Kim

    Oh wow, I like these! I love looking at people’s sketchbooks.

  • Stephan

    Wow, number 4 is awesome!

  • Corina

    LOVE these. So talented. The colours, layers and textures are great. That second one looks like John Waters

  • M

    in the larger portraits, the use of variously colored inks adds more dimension and an other-worldly quality to Hendon’s already grotesquely whimsical illustrations. I’d love to see the rest of this sketchy!

  • Justin

    Really nice. Awesome talent. I like the dude with the hat in the first one. All look pretty awesome though. :)

  • Gina
  • So good, first one is my favorite

    Hey, i like your work…my friend jamie just sent me a link. I feel we have similar styles/tastes in production methods. If you are on normal facebook (i don’t understand what this one is…never seen it before) we should be friends (haha sounds rather lame). If you are down to do small art shows for a scene that appreciates good work, let me know. Always room for one more, as they say.

    • I would be very interested in doing a show together. Email me anytime. Where can I see your work?

  • Ron

    Fabulous sketches. Maria in the red checked blouse would be an excellent addition. Will Emily love it?

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December


Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.


Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
