Booooooom Reader Submissions: April


Here is this month’s Reader Submissions post, please share your work here during the month of April 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. The comments and upvotes do not go unnoticed! 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!


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.



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

  • Future Mapping Co.

    ‘Future Map’ (reprint)
    The Future Mapping Company

    The world is always changing, so keeping up with the latest geographical and political developments means we need to reprint our maps every few years. We’ve also decided to update the font used on our maps, which will be appear across our entire range in time.

    The lithographic process we employ lays down each colour of ink as an individual layer. This method allows us to use specially mixed inks like the metallic and luminescent pigments we have become known for, which just aren’t possible to achieve through digital printing.

    Developing the concept and design of a map, gathering scientific data and statistics, forming the colour palette and working with expert craftsman on the print process, means our maps are a culmination of hard work and the preservation of a craft.

  • The Midnight Tide.
    Mixed Media on Canvas 100cm x 50cm

    painting was created to try and describe what the scene might be like if
    you could look out onto the softly moving surface of the ocean at
    night, When there is just enough moonlight to cast glimmers of sparkling
    colour on the waters flowing surface.

    • Brandon Brooks

      Awesome detailing of the face! I like that it’s untitled and leaves the audience unbiased in naming it’s emotional nature. The atmosphere of the piece is emotionally ambiguous which makes me want to study it over and over again to see what it’s trying to tell me.

      • Mohammad Farhang

        Aw, thanks such a nice interpretation. I’m glad you could communicate with the piece.

  • Chaya Av

    Super diggin’ this! Love how you are sharp on the outlines/shapes being that it is made of painting mediums.
