Booooooom Submissions / September

september-submissions600

Here is this month’s submission post! I can’t believe there were nearly 1400 comments on the August Submissions post. I love seeing all the encouraging comments to one another! Keep it up.

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.

craftsy-penink-01craftsy-penink-02

Our quality sponsor this week is Craftsy which provides resources for all you aspiring artists out there. We’ve been working with them to offer free classes and eGuides but this week Craftsy is offering a paid class for FREE! This is something they don’t normally do.

For the next two days you can enroll in the “Mixed Media: Pen, Ink & Watercolor” class for free! The class covers the fundamentals of using color, creating washes, tones, and drybrush textures.

If you’re interested in any of this, you should try the Mixed Media: Pen, Ink & Watercolor class for free.

Toronto-based artist Randy Grskovic is currently making 200 original collages for people who support his art practice. I like Randy’s work so for me this is a great opportunity to get an original piece at a really affordable price.

Check out his project “200 Patrons” here.

Eye Know: A Surreal Journey Through Tokyo

“Eye Know”, directed by Hiroshi Kondo, begins as a night drive through the city of Tokyo and slowly becomes more and more abstract. Kinda like the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Watch “Eye Know” below.

Booooooom Summer (Ender) Mix: “Truly Madly Deeply II”

trulymadlydeeply600

*Stickying this post for the weekend – thanks to everyone who came out to the party last night!

Of course now that summer is over I actually get the summer mix, so now it’s a summer ender mix. It actually has nothing to do with summer; this is my version of a club mix. It’s the sequel to this mix, and there’s a lot of bad language (mom).

Download it while you can, the FBI removed my last mix from SoundCloud. You can stream and/or download it below.
