Booooooom Reader Submissions: May


Here is 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. 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!

The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the Disqus 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.



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

    The Odds (triptych)
    acrylic on plywood
    16 x 20″ each

    What are The Odds?

    This triptych uses a confection of colour and form to draw people in. Intentionally strange, initial assumptions related to portraiture begin to falter. The identities of these beings is unclear, and thus the potential to see our selves or others in the work is challenged. At the same time we attempt to build a narrative. There is similarity in form, composition and the direction and intensity of the gaze. These beings appear to be occupying the same place at the same time – however unrecognizable their world is. What are the rules in this strange place? How might entering this strange “other-world” shape our self-identities? As we assemble meaning in this strange new world, do we re-assemble our selves?

  • awesome!

  • Very cool. I had a look at your site and there is some great stuff on there. I especially liked your ‘Sunday’ comic.

    THE LUCKY LAMP, created by artist and designer Albi Serafty, is a revolutionary new lighting piece that uses addressable RGB LED technology lighting up in warm, natural or cold color temperatures and running in an infinite loop with five enchanting motions based on Fire, Earth, Wind, Water and Kaleidoscopic themes.

    Seeking to enhance his Mimosa collection, cool in color with sprayed clear polymer, that webs into white membranes, Albi realized that something was missing. Namely – COLOR! After many attempts at trying to program the LED lights to change into cool color, he happened to meet one of the Burning Man Festival organizers, who connected him with an LED expert, Michael Zeron, who had worked on an installation at the festival. In one day, the LEDs were programmed just as Albi had envisioned.

    The strikingly beautiful LUCKY LAMP, combining craftsmanship and technology, transforms from a modern, interactive lamp into a mesmerizing piece of art. 920 LEDs are mounted on a laser cut aluminum base. Wall pieces measure 27”/70cm in diameter. Both color temperature options and the five motion features are dimmable from 0.1-100% by means of a single button. No additional system is required. Each shade, consisting of a metal frame, is sculpted by hand, making each lamp unique.

    This is a project I’ve been working on for two years called ‘Gay Wildlife’. It is a photographic portrait series of the men within the gay bear community. I started this project as a way for me to meet the men I’ve always dreamt about since a young boy. This work speaks bout issues of sexuality, femininity, body image, identity politics, gender roles, confidence, trust, and diversity within a community.

    This series uses photos taken during a period in which I lived in China in 2015 and through a mixture of digital collage, photography and illustration tells dual narratives.

    A blend of political and personal imagery conveys the struggle to adapt to an extremely different environment. I ended up living in China for about 3 months before severe depression sent me back home. I was on an internship program placed in a small industrial city that boasted no listed attractions for tourists other than something called a “High Tech Vegetable Museum” (one of my biggest regrets from this period of time is not visiting it). I was met with a mixture of strong xenophobia, intrigue and disgust. Life was difficult as one of 10 foreigners in a city with a population of a million.

    The funfair. A magical world full of neon lights, candy floss and streel rails. People come together, regardless their social background, political believes or religions. German customs meet multiculti. A photo story in between heritage of traditions and mini jobs.


  • sabatourciuoli

    Sabato is drawing the fragility of human relations by shapes.
    Balance, fear, fragility, that turning point where everything changes.
    Loneliness, neglect, the rare moments when it’s all aligned.
    Awareness, affinity, misunderstandings. Grief, relief and absence.
    The bases of my research.

  • Feby Elsadiora

    I (Feby Elsadiora) made this for my final assignment to finish my study in (Faculty of Art and Design) Visual Communication Design Major in Trisakti University Jakarta, Indoensia. A foldable diorama based on illustration, paper layer technique, and paper sculpting. It tells a story about Aceh War (Part of Indonesia) who fought for freedom against Dutch Colonialism in Nusantara (Indonesia) at 1873 – 1913. The fight was religion based, they fight for their religion (Islam). The war was quite un-popular, and not much todays high school text books explain how the war happened, most of the text book only tells a little story of it because of its motivation of war which is their Religion (Islam), not their country (Indonesia).
    Designed to be used in class for teaching history lesson by storytelling, same function as the anatomical model used in biology classes. So now that a diorama is invented, learning history in class would be boring no more. Here is the link about the details of the works ( https://www.behance.net/gallery/35196857/Diorama-Perang-Aceh-Tugas-Akhir )
