Ultimate List of all the Best Art + Photo Tumblrs to Follow

ultimatearttumblrlist-4

 

*Update December 30th 2015 – I am still updating this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted. Please read the text below before submitting your Tumblr for consideration! Thank you all for the help, this has become an amazing resource – let’s keep it going!

 

I am compiling an extensive list of all the art and photography Tumblrs worth following. I would love your help to make this the ultimate list! Please leave a comment below with your suggestions and I will update this list with the best suggestions.

This list will focus as much as possible on Tumblrs that survey new work by different people and credit the creators of the images. Please do not submit Tumblrs that only focus on one person’s work (ie. your own personal portfolio) or mood boards that do not make any effort to link back to the source of the work.

Please share this with friends, the more input we have the better this resource will be! Stoked for this! Let’s go!

Best of Kickstarter: Odyssey Works “Six Proposals for a More Beautiful World”

odyssey-works1

For the last 15 years, Odyssey Works have specialized in single-audience performances: studying the life of a single individual and then orchestrating the kind of intimate and immersive experiences their audiences-of-one never forget. Many are said to go on to change jobs or commit to loved ones afterward. So who better to write a guide book for creating life-changing moments? Check out the video below for more information on their Kickstarter!

Nice feature on the unabashedly immature work of Swedish artist and skater, Jacob Ovgren, who designs for one of my favourite skate brands, Polar. The video is part of The LB Project’s series promoting art and skateboarding. Check out the interview and more from The LB Project below!

The Booooooom Doodle Hunt

DOODLEHUNT600

I am really really really excited to announce our first-ever Booooooom Doodle Hunt! It starts today! So what is it exactly? Let me tell you!

A couple weeks ago I was hanging with my friend artist Luke Ramsey and I filmed him drawing a whole bunch of these really cool characters. We came up with the idea to hide them all around the site and give away original drawings to people who find them.

I also thought this would be a unique way just to say thanks for hanging around on Booooooom. With that in mind I asked my friends at Herschel Supply if they’d also hook us up with some bags as prizes!

prizes

So here’s how it works:

1. The Doodle Hunt begins today and runs until November 6th.

2. We have added 14 of Luke’s “hidden friends” to random posts starting from TODAY back to JUNE 1 2015 (5 months of posts, nothing is hidden further back than that).

3. There will be 1 additional drawing hidden on a post between now and November 6th. This will be the 15th doodle you will need to complete the set, so keep your eyes peeled on new posts in the next 3 weeks!

4. The “hidden friends” look like this:

1234asdf

5. Whenever you find a “hidden friend” save the image and make sure to record the URL of the post.

6. If you are able to find all 15 “hidden friends” send an email to doodlehunt@booooooom.com with the 15 images and the 15 URLs of the pages they were hiding. The first 4 people to find them all each win a Herschel Supply bag, and an original drawing by Luke Ramsey.

BONUS: There is 1 “hidden friend” that is RED instead of green. The first person to find it instantly wins a Herschel Supply bag!

UPDATE: The Red one has been found!

Happy hunting everyone and big thanks once again to Luke Ramsey and Herschel Supply. This is just for fun but maybe it could turn into a thing! We may give some hints as to the locations after the first week.

Vancouver Art/Book Fair

vabf1

Heads up local people, Vancouver Art/Book Fair opens next week (October 17th-18th) at the Vancouver Art Gallery! Hooray! Last year’s event was amazing, and this year’s looks like it will be bigger and better with more than 70 exhibitors and great lineup of presenters.

The event is organized each year by Project Space, a non-profit dedicated to publication as an artistic practise. Translation: If you’re into books and zines you do not want to miss it! The Vancouver Art/Book Fair is actually the reason I got to be real life friends with Hugh from Landfill Editions after admiring what he does from afar for so long (we even went on a hike). So you might even make some new friends! Put it in your calendar.

Convert Any Image Into A Million Emojis

emoji-schieleEmoji Mosaic Schiele

 

If you are bored at work right now, this is relevant. You can now convert any image into a million emojis thanks to Eric Andrew Lewis, a web developer for The New York Times, who just released Emoji Mosaic. I “created” these emoji versions of classic artworks and it was fun for about 10 seconds. Is it pointless and dumb? Yes. But are you gonna try it out with one of the hundred selfies on your phone right now? That’s what I thought.

Mural Recap: Pow! Wow! Hawaii

james-jeanMural by James Jean

There were so many incredible murals painted at this year’s Pow! Wow! Hawaii event. It’s impossible to the fully appreciate these works without seeing them in person so maybe you’ll have to fly out to Honolulu and find them.

All the images in this post were painstakingly shot by Brandon Shigeta, who had to wake up extremely early (and also wait around for hours) to catch some of these without cars blocking them. He’s one of the hardest working people at this event every year.

I hope people in Honolulu realise how special this is; Vancouver is dying for something like this. Keep in mind, this post doesn’t even include all the work that was produced this year!
