Drew Young / Interview

Drew Young / Interview
I don’t often make back to back posts about the same person but I watched this interview with Drew Young after I had already published the post below.

Drew says some really nice things about me and Booooooom in this video (almost nice to the point where I didn’t want to post it because I don’t wanna be pumping my own tires) so of course I gotta deflect all the praise back to him. He’s my favourite painter in Vancouver and I’ll continue championing his work until everybody knows who he is.

Watch the video below!

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

    What a cocky dick! No really, I love his work and attitude.
