  • Jessica

    ha ha! “ohayougozaimasu” means good morning in Japanese. I know this from Big Bird in Japan. Have a great time in Ohio Jeff!

    If you want to win instant points with Ohioans…

    Yell out…”O-H!” And they will yell back, “I-O!”

    I know, it’s weird.

    the “o-h”/”i-o” thing really only works in columbus. speaking of columbus, it’s worth a visit.

  • Drakeable

    YAY! i live here! but near Cincy….
    I wish i could come see your shingy! Good luck, have fun. hopefully us Ohioans are kind.

  • Philosoraptor

      • Ariel

        gomennasai, yurushite kudasai 😀

        You’d have put me to shame anyways, I’m just a beginner.

      • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

    Nice picture. I wish I could spent my next holidays here…

  • Shelby

    I go to SAA, and you did wonderful! Loved your presentation! Only, I believe our school’s just a tad bit bigger than the barn, haha.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      thanks shelby! yea i never got to even see that barn, Ohio is not as small as people say

      • Owen Carstensen

        i wish you were speaking at CCAD (Columbus College of Art and Design) you should visit while you are in Ohio!

  • http://www.myspace.com/muhjadeduh Jade Wilson

    OMG Thanks for coming down! Btws i’m the crazy girl who hugged you 😛

    My friends and I really enjoyed your presentation! Your a real inspiration to us artist in the pond of life.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      thanks for saying that jade!

  • http://justinrampage.tumblr.com Justin Page

    Great job tonight Jeff. I really felt inspired from your presentation. I haven’t really been in the blogging arena too long (7 months), but I enjoy doing it more and more each day. It completely inspires me and promotes excellent artists and their work. It’s a win/win for everyone. I will take some of your tips and apply them to my blog adventure. Thanks again for doing what you do Jeff!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      cool Justin, if you ever have questions just email me or add me on facebook and get at me on there

  • http://awartinger.tumblr.com Anthony Wartinger

    Hey,

    Thanks for coming to Dayton, it was great seeing your work, hearing your story and chatting it up with you post presentation. Happy to say that I am definitely bookmarking booooooom and checking it frequently.

    Thanks Again,
    -AW

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      cheers anthony, im glad you came up afterwards – really enjoyed the chance to talk with you

  • Travis

    hey im a student there! good stuff today jeff, thanks for sharing. your insight on google was actually very handy lol

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      haha i think that i went a little over board with the Google stuff, there is definitely info that people who are interested in blogging would really benefit from and i could have easily spoken for an hour just on that alone

      • http://www.kennethglenn.com Kenny Glenn

        The google stuff was good, a lot of people dont know how that stuff work… and prolly should.

  • Schaeffer

    I drove down from Sandusky, Ohio (about a three hour drive) and it was totally worth the trip. If I am to convince the VCT program at my campus to get you to speak here, would you be interested in making another trip?

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      wow thanks for committing to driving out! definitely have someone at your school email me directly I have quite a few requests for the upcoming months so it will just be a matter of timing!

  • http://saa.edu Flick

    Jeff, Thanks again for coming to speak with the saa students. Both the faculty and students really appreciated your time and information. Keep in touch.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      my pleasure, i really had fun doing it!

  • http://www.simplyalyshia.tumblr.com Alyshia

    I was one of the students from saa. Thanks for the insight about blogging! Really helpful since I’ve gotten into that. I’ve had an experience similar to your youtube video. Only I posted an illustration on a blog site and few months later I found a girl who found the illustration and got a tattoo of it, haha. Thanks again for the inspiration and all the helpful insight.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      hahaha that is awesome! did you email her?

      • Alyshia

        Yep! I got in touch with her. And she told me she found a huge meaning in my work thus getting it tattooed. Really awesome how blogs can connect you to other people like that.

  • Brittany

    I also came from Sandusky to see you, and all the information you provided was very interesting. I didn’t think you went overboard at all with all the google stuff. The above commenter and I both attend BGSU Firelands in Huron, ohio. And I’m sure there would be so many people who would like to hear about what you have to say. I’d definitely make sure i’d come see you talk again! :):)

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      thanks for coming brittany!

  • http://www.crazyegg.net ankido

    Love it…

  • lapetitefaon

    Siiiigh, the lack of updates is slowly killing me. ITS HOW I START MY MORNING! Hope Ohio was great!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      i know I KNOW. gimme half an hour

  • Natasha

    Glad you enjoyed your visit. Tangent speech was awesome. Props to you for doing what you do, especially all on your own – definitely inspiring. Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay and chat, but booooooom.com has been on my top safari sites for months, i love it. Hope you’re not too jet-lagged & enjoyed the deceivingly not-so-small ohio. Thanks for visiting!

    ステイゴールデン!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

      thanks natasha, it was really encouraging to meet many of you and hear back from so many that are enjoying it. ill do my best to keep it rolling along

      i left ohio feeling like a big bar of gold

  • http://paigebaker.blogspot.com/ Paige

    This is so beautiful! I love BOOOOOOOM!

  • jeffrey

    I’m sorry to hear that you had to come to ohio. ive lived here my whole life and im finally leaving this place. if you ever have a chance to go back to ohio, don’t take that chance. haha

  • Isaiah

    Awww I cant believe I missed you guys i Graduated from SAA last year :(

Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

ultimatearttumblrlist-4

 

*Update April 28th 2016 – We are continuing to update this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted. Please read the text below before submitting your Tumblr for consideration! Thank you all for the help, this has become an amazing resource – let’s keep it going!

 

I am compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the best suggestions.

This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey new work by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) or mood boards that do not make any effort to link back to the source of the work.

Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be!
