Our friends over at Yours Truly were recently tapped by Ray-Ban to curate a group of rising composers and filmmakers to produce a series of music driven, narrative shorts for their Never Hide Films channel. Booooooom was brought on board to help curate the film posters for the series, and this beautiful piece above was created by the first artist we contacted, the talented Andrea Wan.
The series kicks off next week with this film by UK Director Danny Sangra, scored by west coast producer, Kendrick Lamar collaborator, Terrace Martin. “Saturday Night Cosmic Breakdown” is a trippy little short about the end of the world. Keep an eye out for it!
My friends Jasper and Amy have started a fun little clothing brand, aimed at kids ages 2-10, called Big Bad Wolf. Designs will be released each month from an impressive list of artists including: James Jean, Nychos, Dabs Myla, Tristan Eaton, Andrea Wan, Evah Fan, Madsteez, and many others. The shirt above was designed by artist Yoskay Yamamoto.
Something tells me they’re gonna do alright! You can follow the project on Instagram @bigbadwolfkids.
The day has finally come! Our very special Herschel Supply & Booooooom bag is now AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE HERE! There is a flag in the top right corner to tell you if you are on the USA or CAN store page.
This month I’ll be hooking people up with Herschel Supply products just for submitting a drawing to our “Drawing On The Past” project, and 3 lucky people will get the special bag you see above. I’ll give away something to one of the next few submitters!

Here’s a lovely interview with my friend, Hong Kong-born, Berlin-based, artist Andrea Wan as she prepares for her first solo show, in Denmark. Vancouver really misses you Andrea, me especially.
I love the part where she talks about the improvised stories she used to tell into a tape recorder when she was younger. Things like that can unlock ideas that are buried deep in your subconscious.
My mom kept an old journal of mine from grade 3, and when I found it a few years ago, it was hilarious to see how many of the stories were about someone getting lost. It didn’t matter if it was a boy, a snail, a knight. No matter what happened in the beginning and middle of my stories, somewhere near the end, whoever it was, they got lost. I guess it was my biggest fear at the time.

Here’s a look at many of the murals painted at Pow Wow Hawaii 2013, in the Kakaako district of Honolulu. The event saw over 100 local and international artists descend upon the area and cover it with art. All photos by Brandon Shigeta.
