K.K. Barrett and Kid Koala Bring “Nufonia Must Fall” to Life on Stage


Eric San (aka Kid Koala) and frequent Spike Jonze collaborator K.K. Barrett recently adapted San’s 2003 graphic novel “Nufonia Must Fall” for the stage. Barrett describes the show as “a live silent film with live performance, live editing, live sound effects, live music played by a plethora of instruments by Eric”.

The story follows a robot who wants to write love songs to the girl he likes but is unable to sing. The characters in the original comic were re-created as puppets, and the comic panels were turned into 12 miniature sets. For three nights in a row, during the Luminato Festival, the story was performed while Kid Koala and the Afiara String Quartet provided the sounds.

Love to see this performed, hope it comes to Vancouver. Watch the video below documenting the artists’ process!

Booooooom Submissions / August


Here’s this month’s submission post! Thank you for all the submissions to the July Submissions post. This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks 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 during the month of August. 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.
