  • Erica Mao

    Definitely one of my favorites
    love the colors and perspective

  • I love the mix of geometric shapes and lines with the textured strokes and layering. The dark colours and red really play with your thoughts on what the paintings are trying to tell you. I get the sense that all is not right with the people in the images, a sort of ghostly feel in some and the feeling of death in others. Really interesting pieces though, I’d love to see them in a gallery so I could study them better.

  • The 4th painting… A kind of island bursting out from a blood ocean… I’d like to see it in real. Must be quite spectacular!

  • Alex

    What you don’t get from these photos is the pretty thick ‘gel’ glazes he uses. All of the red and black is thick layers of gel paint, with the lines and lighter areas masked off when this is applied. Picture 5 shows this in particular

  • michelle ruby

    Damn. I want to be in your mind.

  • willem

    Wicked. Love the color scheme.

  • Jerry

Booooooom Reader Submissions: December

december-600

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.
