My favourite video series returns with a new episode! “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” is a project by Becky Sloan & Joseph Pelling (previously featured here and here) and is quite honestly one of the best things on the Internet. The writing is so funny (and creepy), the sets and costumes are terrific, and the combination of live-action and animated elements are flawless.

Mount Gay has launched a series called “The Original Spirits” highlighting artisans and craftsmen who make things the good old fashion way; with their bare hands. The videos celebrate these individuals and draw parallels to the brand’s own handcrafted history of rum-making in Barbados.

This episode features James Tucker, co-founder of the celebrated San Francisco-based letterpress studio, The Aesthetic Union. In the video Tucker works on a woodcut and makes a print on a hand fed, foot treadle operated, press from 1910. Watch the video below.

Booooooom Submissions / November

november-600

Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the October Submissions post. Some of my favourite posts last month came from there.

This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other, it really pumps people up, and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.

Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

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.
