    just perfect! love the colours.

  • lovelly:)all!

  • Wow! Great ilustrations.

  • Heroes, monsters and titans, awright… these illustrations make me think of the old bible-school books we used to have to thumb through on Sundays… although these make me think way more Old Testament than King Jimmy’s version (the sequel).

  • following him for some time now… very nice, very nice!!!

  • Love this, rather excellent.

    The Wyrms are probably my favourites here. Any information on what these monsters are from? I thought I saw a bit of Grendal/Beowulf in some of them at first glance, but I am pretty sure that’s not it now.

  • Haha, these selection seems to be about my monsters, some of them are coming from Lewis Caroll, some others coming from the matchbox labels !
    Anyway thanks for the post, I love that blog, have you had a look on our expérimental publishing project ICINORI.com with Mayumi Otero? Could interest some people, most of that pictures are coming from books made for icinori…

    Thanks for your interest !


  • Seriously amazing! Color, form, and subject are all truly great.

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.
