Book Giveaway: Jennilee Marigomen “Window Seat”

jennileemarigomen01

I’m excited for my friend, photographer Jennilee Marigomen, who is set to release her first book entitled “Window Seat” on Friday, September 26th at Make. The delicate images in the book describe a trip to Mexico in a way that only she could. Her work is understated, and I find the quiet beauty she draws out of each little moment intensely personal.

She has kindly offered to give away two signed copies of “Window Seat” to Booooooom readers. What I propose is that you all hop over to her Instagram @jennileem, have a look around, and then come back here and leave a comment about an image from her feed that really speaks to you.

I’ll let her pick a couple winners on the September 25th, the day before her book is released. Have a look at more images of her book below, and remember to leave a comment for a chance to snag a copy.

Booooooom Submissions / August

august-submission1

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.

“Love From Hawaii” Free Encouragement Project (Gallery of Postcard Senders)

00001

Our “Love From Hawaii” Encouragement Project is in full swing. As I described in the previous post I am having people here in Hawaii write encouraging postcards to Booooooom readers who leave comments on this post.

I’ll be adding portraits of all the postcard senders here. My cell phone battery is constantly dying so I’ll get them up as quickly as humanly possible – tons on the way.

You may recognize a few faces in the gallery below!

“Love From Hawaii” Free Encouragement Project

lovefromhawaii-1

 

If you’ve been following along on Instagram you already know that I’m in Honolulu right now for this year’s Pow! Wow! Hawaii event. The last two years I painted murals, but this year I wanted my contribution to be a little different.

This year I want to include people who can’t physically come to Hawaii so I’m launching a free encouragement project. It’s really simple, if you’re in need of some encouragement ask for it in the comments below.

Tell me why you need the encouragement, be specific, and include your mailing address. I’ll be walking around Hawaii this week meeting people and asking them to write some words of encouragement on postcards, in response to the comments on this post.

The first 100 messages will be written on a set of beautiful postcards given to me by my friend James Jean. If you’re interested the set will be released by Chronicle Books on February 25th. At the end of the week I will mail out all the postcards.

I’m not sure how many people will actually ask for free encouragement but if I get through the first 100 I’ll buy more postcards and continue on. So who wants some free encouragement?
