Today we launch a new Booooooom project #FriendlyGangSigns.
Here are the instructions:
1. Use your hands to make letters and take photos of them.
2. Arrange the photos to spell out a message. It could be something funny, your New Year’s resolution, life motto, a love letter, anything. You can certainly make something more creative than the two images here (I spent a grand total of 10 minutes making them).
3. Share your magnificent creation on Instagram, and be sure to hashtag #FriendlyGangSigns and tag @Booooooom.
Please submit square format photos. There’s a free app called framemagic that allows you to arrange a 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, even a 5×5 square. Another option is to just screenshot your camera roll.
You can use filters, but don’t go overboard.
The most creative, funny, thought-provoking, submissions will be shared on Booooooom. Two winners will be picked on January 20th and each will snag the entire collection of tees I designed for Aritzia.
I haven’t watched The Simpsons in years but I might have to this Sunday. The teaser for the next episode reveals it to be a tribute to Japanese director, animator, Hayao Miyazaki. It will be an entire episode brimming with references to Studio Ghibli films.
The teaser has glimpses of My Neighbor Totoro, Howl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Spirited Away, well, you get the idea.
I was thinking though, how cool would it have been to have Studio Ghibli actually produce the episode of The Simpsons? In their style! I guess, this is the next best thing.
Watch the video below!
The sequel we never knew we wanted. This short by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling is fantastic. The writing, the animations, the sets, everything, just brilliant. Ahhhh, I have to watch it again. It has the same vibes as the creepiest video on Youtube (cocka-doodly-doodly-doo).
If you watched the first episode “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” you know this is gonna get a little dark. Watch it below!
One of our current Quality Sponsors, The New School, in New York, is hosting a competition open to anyone graduating high school this year (or older). Up for grabs is one full and one partial scholarship for a bachelor’s program to any of the five divisions at The New School.
