“Ten Years of Monster Children” Book

Ten Years of Monster Children book

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.

Take a look inside the book below!

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!

Switcheroo Book and Interview with photographer Hana Pesut

My friend Hana rules! She’s the one in the middle, then on the left, then on the right. She’s the one I dedicated the first two Booooooom mixes to (here and here).

She spent the last couple years traveling the world, shooting “switcheroos”, portraits of people swapping clothes. After she’d shot more than 200 of them, and had them appear on every blog imaginable, she decided to put together a book.

Well, she’s finally released her “Switcheroo Book”, and the best news for you guys is that I have a copy to give away! I’ve been sent hundreds of books since I started this site and I can honestly say this is one of my absolute favourites. She spared no expense producing this thing, and the final product is gorgeous.

If you’d like to snag the book, take a couple minutes to read my short interview with her below, and then leave her am encouraging message in the comments! I’ll pick a winner in two weeks (July 12th). This is open to everyone!

Read the Interview below!
