James Benjamin Franklin

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

  • BOOOOOOOM! Bringing the goods, yet again. James Benjamin Franklin sounds like the name of an assassin, and this artist is killing it.

    • hahah anyone with three names sounds like an assassin to me!

  • these are amazing! they make me think of wes anderson

  • p.s. i feel my name breaks the assassin rule 🙁

  • images 1 2 and 3 I find really quite dark and disturbing for some reason, maybe a little Guantanamo Bay.

  • i am usually not for illustrations, but i really like james’s work. i think it is his overall tone that i am drawn to.

  • Abt

    Some kind of hypnotizing art. Very amazing.

  • these are excellent.


  • they are so painfully poignant, beautiful!
