Booooooom x Society6 Doodle Hunt Officially Begins!



Today we officially launch our biggest Doodle Hunt yet! We’ve teamed up with our friends at Society6 and commissioned 3 artists (Sashiko Yuen aka Wishcandy, Nicole Xu, and Sara Maese) to create a bunch of drawings that we could hide on Booooooom and Society6. There’s 15 drawings in total, and the first person to find them all gets a $500 Society6 gift card! Just a little something to help you grow or start your art collection!

So what if you find them all but you aren’t the fastest to do it? At the end of the Doodle Hunt there will be a random draw for another $500 Society6 gift card (these prizes are no joke!) and any Hunters who found all 15 drawings will be automatically entered in this draw! There will also be some smaller prizes for just participating!

The Doodle Hunt closes August 19th. Doodle Hunters submit by sending an email containing all 15 images to: doodlehunt@booooooom.com.

Good luck and thanks for hanging around on Booooooom!







All 15 drawings have the same blue border as the image above (each drawing is numbered 1-15).

5 drawings are hidden on Booooooom in posts dating back 6 months from today.

5 drawings are hidden on Society6’s blog, dating back 1 year from today.

3 drawings will appear in future posts on either Booooooom or Society6’s blog, published between today and August 16th.

1 drawing will appear in the Booooooom Secret Email Club.

1 drawing will appear in a Society6’s mailer.

We’ll be giving some hints on Twitter on @Booooooom & @Society6 throughout the Doodle Hunt!

  • “hidden” meaning they are clearly visible on various posts

  • stay tuned for the last 5 – one on each mailer and the last 3 will appear on news posts on either site !

  • open to all!

  • ddnini

    Found the first 10! Worried that I’ve missed any on the mailer though, since I’ve only just signed up to Society6’s mailing list :(

  • no, asshole

    I’ve already found 5 from society6 but only 4 from Booooooom……….. will you be posting another clue! my eyes are about to fall out of my head trying to find that last one

  • Sophisticat Netlabel

    I’m a programmer and just wanted to point out that you have posted the doodle hunt images in your html code in such a way that they are not encrypted or hashed. So basically what I’m saying is I downloaded your html code for this site and was able to locate the 5 on this blog within about 60 seconds without any searching whatsoever. I simply used the ctrl-f function. Kind of defeats the purpose of a hunt… I highly suggest you be more cautious with the way you post the remaining doodle hunt images or else regular participants won’t stand a chance. I also wanted to point out that if anybody backed up your original html code for this blog prior to the contest and then saved the updated html code for your blog as it stands now they’d also be able to find all your doodle hunt images by using a “compare” operation. This method would also allow all the images to be found instantly even if you had encrypted/hashed them. If you’d like to know a method to get around this problem I’d be more than happy to help. I will not participate in this contest as it would absolutely defeat the purpose but I do recommend you hire someone on board who can help you work around these issues so that the contest is fair for everyone.

  • 2 left for me to find… still missing 8 & 9! I know where one will be… still looking for one in a new blog post. Where is it?!

  • Trish Pickelhaupt

    I’ve looked through both blogs up until 6 months ago twice and I still somehow can’t find 2, 9 or 12! I’m going crazy

  • Ronald Stacy Gilson

    I have found 8 I need 7 more so it looks like I won’t have them all by tomorrow bummed
