AVAILABLE NOW: Booooooom x Herschel Supply Backpack

herschelsupply_booooooom

The day has finally come! Our very special Herschel Supply & Booooooom bag is now AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE HERE! There is a flag in the top right corner to tell you if you are on the USA or CAN store page.

There are only 75 bags. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Thanks for all your support for Booooooom over the years, and a huge thank you to artist Andrea Wan for designing the beautiful liner!

This month I’ll be hooking people up with Herschel Supply products just for submitting  a drawing to our “Drawing On The Past” project, and 3 lucky people will get the special bag you see above. I’ll give away something to one of the next few submitters!

Get the full instructions here.

This Friday, July 11th, artist Adam Lupton is doing something here in Vancouver I’ve never really seen before; he’s having two solo painting shows open at two different galleries. Positive Negative will host his show “What’s In Store For Me In The Direction I Don’t Take?” and right around the corner Gam Gallery will host his other show “Not Everything That Goes Around Comes Back Around”.

Take a look at a selection of work from both shows below.

Craftsy: Figure Drawing Class

craftsy-lifedrawing-02

This is a sponsored post for Craftsy which provides educational videos for creatives. I wouldn’t publish this if I hadn’t tried out this class myself and felt it was worth your time. I work hard to find sponsors that are a fit and turn down a lot of opportunities that aren’t.

Craftsy is offering a Free Figure Drawing class that teaches you the basics; things like blocking in, contour lines, and methods for describing light and shadow. I’ve actually wanted to do a series of tutorial videos for Booooooom with different artists (something I might still do) for people who haven’t gone to art school. Anyways, I think it’s definitely worth checking out if you want to brush up on some fundamentals. I learned a couple tricks from the videos and it cost me nothing.

If you want, sign up for the free Figure Drawing class.
