    Amazing use of geometric shapes. Colours are so captivating.
    I can’t keep my eyes away.

  • i love em too.

  • I feel like the first one looks like small organisms under a microscope.

  • the colors are so vibrant! i really love these.

  • triangles make the world a better place.

  • tim

    i love this style…i know artists “steal” from one another, but is this biting Chris Johanson’s style a little too hard? I know Johanson a lot of people, but the palette and shapes in many of MWJ’s work is soooo similar….Or are artists in the Northwest, Oregon, Northern Cali, etc. just tapping into the same “consciousness”?…….huh??

    • i actually see very little of Johanson’s style here.. maybe Andrew Schoultz or Thomas Campbell but Johanson’s style is quite a bit different

  • i want this guy to make a house to live in basically

  • Monika

    The colour wheel comes to life!

  • snoisy

    the fourth one down is like a cross between Bitte Orca by Dirty Projectors and Hey Everyone by Dananananaykroyd
    fantastic albumen and lovely pictures
    well done mr jacques

  • Mary Katherine K.

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.
