Monster Children recently had their 10 year anniversary and the Aussies commemorated the landmark with a gorgeous book. This thing’s huge! You can purchase it here.

Big congratulations to Campbell and company, a decade is a massive accomplishment. Their magazine was one of my biggest influences when I started Booooooom and when readers ask me about other sites to check out Monster Children is still one of the first I mention.

Brandon Bird's Astonishing World of Art Book Giveaway

This week’s giveaway is a copy of pop artist Brandon Bird’s “Astonishing World of Art” activity book. Bird was one of the first artists I ever posted about on this site, way back in 2008 (remember Seinfeld wielding the nunchucks?), and he’s remained a personal favourite.

The artist is known for putting celebrities into the most bizarre situations, his painting “Nobody Wants To Play Sega With Harrison Ford” is one of my favourites.

If you’d like to snag this book, leave a comment below with a request for a celebrity in a bizarre situation. I’ve posted a bunch of images below to inspire your suggestions, there’s a video too!
