Fresh Letter Project

Fresh Letter Project
The new Booooooom project is here!

I wanted to launch a fun project before I left Hawaii so I spent the last couple days building a giant cork board at Fresh Café (located in the front of Loft In Space, which hosts Pow Wow).

The idea is to have people from all over the world create letters, photograph them, and physically mail the photos to the café! I shot a few sets of letters on the beach with some friends to kick it off.

Hopefully over time there will be a giant collection of these letters that people at Fresh Café can use to spell fun messages!

Fresh Letter Project

The letter “M” by 123Kids.

So here’s how it works:

1. Find or create a letter (or if you’re really feeling inspired create a whole alphabet).

2. Take a photo of your letter (vertical photos only). Try to make the letter fill as much of the photo as possible as it needs to be recognizable from a distance.

3. If you are on Twitter or Instagram you can do one of the following things (if you’re not, you can skip this step):

Share your photo on Instagram with the hashtag #freshletterproject

Tweet your photo on Twitter to @Booooooom

4. Make a 4” x 6” print of your photo. Use a marker to write your name on the back of the photo as well as the letter you created, your location, and Twitter/Instagram name if you use them.

5. Put the print in an envelope and write in big letters:

 

TO: JASPER WONG

“FRESH LETTER PROJECT”

831 Queen Street

Honolulu HI 96813

When visitors at Fresh Café make messages using your letters they will tag you on Twitter/Instagram that way you’ll get to see your letters being used! I will also select messages to post here on Booooooom!

Have fun!

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*Update April 28th 2016 – We are continuing to update this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted.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!
