    i am extremely weirded out! my old roommates and i had a stuffed polar bear(roughly dog sized and not real) in our house named hogan, which in a drunken night was randomly doused with lighter fluid and lit on fire. the flames were on hogan’s back, in the exact same spot that is painted above. tooooo weeeeeirrd!

    The paintings are very thought provoking; the artist is attempting to draw attention to the planet’s problems. It is great art and with an important message to boot.

    Amazing works of imagination, flawlessly executed! The bear,fox and the gull, are just flat disturbing! I keep going back to the fox. That’s brilliant! The animals, and most people for that matter have gotten no vote in how things are going. These are great paintings, but they are also strong political statements.

Music Video: HVOB “The Anxiety to Please”


Part music video, part art installation, the tracks off HVOB’s latest album are something of a dialogue (or rather a “trialogue”) with Austrian artists Clemens Wolf and lichterloh. Each collaboration operates as a self-contained piece (installation, music, and video), highlighting different materials and their mesmerizing transformations. Check out the captivating experimentations for “The Anxiety to Please” off the album Trialog below!

For those of you who are new, these posts are the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other helps me see what work you like really pumps people up. I encourage you to do both! These posts get a lot of traffic so even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen by many (and definitely sends traffic to your own websites).

Please share your work here this month by leaving a comment below. The commenting system allows images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.


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.
