Booooooom Reader Submissions: September


Here is this month’s submission post! Thank you for all your amazing submission to the August Submissions post and as always, keep those encouraging comments to one another coming!

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, it really encourages artists in this community 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.

Animation: Ethereal ft. Lord Narf “Bump”


Aaron Vinton and Pete Puskas direct this glitched out 3D animated video for Ethereal and Lord Narf’s song “Bump” that travels deep into the uncanny valley. I always wonder if these kinds of videos annoy 3D animators or not. I have no way to gauge the amount of work it takes to produce this effect; is it an intentionally bad scan of a room using a Kinect camera?

Maybe someone can enlighten me with regard to the process in the comments below. For the time being, ignorance is bliss. Watch “Bump” below.

Short Film: “In Search of the Miraculous” by Sam Kuhn


When I came across Sam Kuhn’s video for Here We Go Magic (two posts below this one) I immediately went poking around on Vimeo to see what else he made. I came across this beautiful little art film, which I believe was funded through Kickstarter, called “In Search of the Miraculous”.

I can’t fully express what it is that I enjoy so much about this film but a lot of it is the cinematography by Fantavious Fritz (his short film “Paradise Falls” is great).

The description for this film is: “A young man drawn silently towards the siren call of oblivion. A river of cinematic images and sounds flowing into an ocean. A yawning abyss. A woman. The last shot in this film could land someone in jail.”

They weren’t joking about the last shot. Watch “In Search of the Miraculous” below.

Obsessive Cut-Paper Artworks by Artist Calvin Nicholls


Amazing work by paper artist, Calvin Nicholls. Carefully formed from an initial hand-drawn template, the haut-relief effect is achieved through a meticulous process involving X-ACTO knives, scalpels, scissors, glue, and of course, a whole lot of time. A single piece can take weeks, and for the more elaborate ones, years to complete! More images below.
