Animation: Simpsons Pixels




I recently came across a whole bunch of these cool pixelated Simpsons characters on Tumblr and after clicking through several different pages I found Simpsons Pixels. Not sure how I completely missed this brilliant animation from way back in February (it’s unforgivable really).

All the looping animated gifs are characters from Ivan Dixon and Paul Robertson’s amazing pixelated Simpsons animation – watch it below! There’s so many great references.

Booooooom Reader Submissions: October


Here is this month’s submission post! Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the September Submissions post. As always, I get pumped up when I see everyone leaving positive comments on each other’s work! Great job everybody.

In case you’re new here, this is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Up-vote work you like as it really encourages artists in this community and helps me see what kind of work the readers 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 (and hopefully new fans) to your own websites.

The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website. Don’t post an image larger than 1mb, sometimes our system rejects it altogether so if you want to make sure your submission goes through submit a web resolution image!

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.

Music Video: De Staat “Witch Doctor”

De Staat2

Outrageous video by Netherlands trio Ton Meijdam, Thom Snels, and Béla Zsigmond (a.k.a. Studio Smack) proves you can do a lot with a little! I feel like maybe it was inspired by this? (Probably not)

Watch the video for De Staat’s high energy track, “Witch Doctor,” followed by the behind-the-scenes making-of video below!

Will Laren’s Tat Squad #3 Zine


One of my absolute favourite artists on this whole damn planet, Will Laren, is releasing a new zine Tat Squad #3. I’m the proud owner of a couple original drawings by him and a huge supporter of what he does because everything he makes is my favourite. Go follow him on Tumblr, and Instagram, and order his zine.

He wanted me to tell you his Tat Squad Oath is that if anyone out there gets a real tattoo of one of his designs in the zine that entitles you to free Tat Squad zines for life (all future issues).

Have a look at more drawings from the zine below.

Cabin Porn Book


One of my favourite tumblrs, Cabin Porn, has just released a book! In six years the blog has featured more than 12,000 hand built cabins, and the book chronicles more than 200 of these.

Can we take a moment to acknowledge that the guy in the image above has built himself a bicycle elevator! Watch elevator in action in the trailer below, which was photographed and edited by Noah Kalina.
