Booooooom Reader Submissions: June

june2016-600

**UPDATE** Due to the high volume of submissions there is now a separate system for submitting video work (short films, music videos, animations) for Booooooom TV: SUBMIT VIDEOS HERE.

Hello everyone, here is this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your art and photography here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure to post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person, and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link below the guidelines at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use our commenting system to submit your work.

 

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.

Jeff Keane Drew Lynda Barry into Family Circus

I love this. American cartoonist Lynda Barry has just been immortalized in The Family Circus by cartoonist Jeff Keane (aka Jeffy), who took over the strip created by his father Bil Keane (love seeing their signatures together). I would have assumed Lynda Barry would hate a comic like this, and Jeff Keane even asked her friend why she liked it so much, saying “It’s not a ‘cool’ comic strip”. Lynda posted this reply on her blog:

“Dearest Jeffy K,

Know this: Love is ALWAYS cool.

XOX

Cousin Lynda B.”

 

Gotta love Lynda Barry! Ernie Pook’s Comeek for life! Read more about her love and respect for the Keane’s strip on her blog here, and if you feel so inclined, read more Family Circus here.
