Last Name London

“Last Name London” by Theophilus London. Directed by my friend Harrison (Boyce and Brown). I was sad to see him leave Vancouver for New York last year, but it’s exciting to see a talented friend breaking through.

The “Before Life” Project

Last week we announced the “After Life” series, our collaboration with Poketo. This week I am excited to announce the “Before Life” project!

This is a chance for you to design a wallet and add your name to the impressive list of artists who have worked with Poketo! An open call for submissions like this is a first for them and we’re happy to be a part of it!

Booooooom x Poketo The Before Life Series Project

So here’s what you have to do (READ CAREFULLY):

1. CREATE! Design what you think “Before Life” was like. What did the world look like before we all got here? Did it have a lot of color? Did it ooze with neon? Did that primordial sludge really look quite handsome? You let us know!

2. DESIGN! Your design must be 300 DPI, 8.75″ width x 4″ height. But, DO NOT submit the hi resolution version. Make a low resolution version JPEG(no more than 1MB) for submission. If your design wins the contest, you will need to send us the hi resolution version later.

3. SUBMIT! Post your low resolution submission on Poketo’s Facebook Wall. Multiple submissions per artist are allowed. In the post title, write “Poketo x Booooooom Wallet Contest”. You have until July 3, 2011 to post your designs!

4. VOTE! We’ll post a gallery of selected submissions on Booooooom’s Facebook Wall and let you guys vote and help decide which design gets the top prize.

5. THE PRIZE! Winner will be announced on July 12, 2011. Poketo will produce 50 pieces of the winning design to be sold alongside the works of 200 other international artists on poketo.com. On top of props from both Booooooom and Poketo, the winner also gets 20 of the 50 limited edition wallets to keep. How’s that for bragging rights?

Don’t forget: Deadline for submissions is July 3, 2011. Post your wallet design on facebook.com/poketo. If you have any questions, post a comment here. Good luck and happy designing!

Toothpick Sculpture

“Rolling through the Bay”, the world’s largest kinetic sculpture made entirely of toothpicks. It has taken Scott Weaver more than 35 years and 100,000 toothpicks to build it. Incredible!
