I think it’s safe to say these are the most deluxe mixtapes ever made. Music blogger Brandon Bogajewicz’s concept behind the Vinyl Moon project is simple: Subscribers get a new mixtape mailed to them each month, on limited edition vinyl, with beautiful packaging by a new different designer.
So if you’re a music lover, today’s your lucky day! We have two prizes for Booooooom readers: 1 set of volumes 1-3 (sold out) and 1 three-month subscription to Vinyl Moon. All you have to do is leave a comment below with the name of a song that you think Brandon should include on an upcoming mixtape! I’ll let him pick 2 winners on December 18th.
#SHOOTITYOURSELF, a new video series by #TheCreatorClass and Canon, features some of Instagram’s most popular photographers sharing insights into the creation of their signature images. In this episode, Timothy McGurr better known as @13thwitness shares briefly about what it’s like being the son of artist Futura, and having family friends like Keith Haring. He snaps a few photos too.

Thanks to every single one of you who submitted work to the November Reader Submissions post, it’s really cool to see all the talent in this community!
For those of you who are new, these posts are the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other helps me see what work you like really pumps people up. I encourage you to do both! These posts get a lot of traffic so even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen by many (and definitely sends traffic to your own websites).
Please share your work here this month by leaving a comment below. The commenting system allows images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.
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.
This is for all you aspiring photographers, illustrators, and type designers out there! We’ve teamed up with Skillshare to offer you 1 month of unlimited access to all their creative classes, for $0. Free. You can sign up here for a premium account: Booooooom + Skillshare 30-day extended trial.
I’ve been personally trying out some of their classes and I just blazed through this great class on designing a single letter: “One Drop Cap Letterform at a Time” by the amazing Jessica Hische (I’ll always refer to her as the one who did that fantastic Moonrise Kingdom type). She has so many useful tips in this, especially when she talks about properly using handlebars and plotting points in Illustrator.
From what I’ve seen so far these classes are a great way to brush up on something you may have learned a long time ago or a chance to learn something completely new. Full disclosure: Skillshare did not pay us to make this post, however if you sign up through this link it will support our site! Absolutely no pressure to do so – I still recommend their site as a worthwhile resource even if you don’t use our link!
You can watch a preview of Jessica Hische’s class below!
I’d like to see Jiro’s reaction to this video of Master Sushi Chef Hiroyuki Terada deconstructing a McDonalds Big Mac and rolling it up like sushi. If you’re taking notes at home he adds tomato, avocado, BBQ sauce, and spicy mayo.
Watch the video below (you want to resist watching but you can’t).
