Merry Christmas everyone, here are the top 20 posts from 2015! These were our most shared articles this year (and a few of my personal favourites mixed in). If you missed last year’s post: Top 15 of 2014.

The first article linked below, our Seb Lester video, was watched 60 MILLION TIMES on Facebook (see here). 60 million??? I still can’t believe it.

The 20 Most Memorable Music Videos of 2015

20musicvideos-2015

Here’s my picks for the 20 best, most creative, funny, beautiful, memorable videos of 2015. I don’t believe any other sites chose the video I picked for Video of the Year. It took me awhile to edit this down from a list I had of 50 or so videos. Hope you find a couple that you overlooked this year, and if you disagree with my list, let me what your top 20 is in the comments. FKA Twigs is not on this list so let the disagreements begin.

Watch all the videos below!

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*Update December 30th 2015 – I am still updating this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted.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!

Booooooom Reader Submissions: March

march-submissions-600

With all that’s been going on, the project we have coming up in Barcelona, and the release of our art/skate film with the Zenga Bros, I completely forgot to put up this month’s Reader Submissions post!

For those that don’t already know, this is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other, it really pumps people up, 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 this month. 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.

Booooooom Party Radio: Interview with Go Yama

go-yama-interview

I’m excited to share with you this interview and exclusive mix for Booooooom by Garrett “Scooter” Oyama, aka Go Yama. I came across Go Yama’s incredible cover of Flying Lotus’ “Putty Boy Strut” a couple months ago and found myself listening to it over and over and over. This feature came directly out of my obsession with this song.

I’m always hunting around on Soundcloud for up and coming artists, and producers. If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else for a feature like this, please share a link to a Soundcloud page in the comments! Listen to the mix and read the full interview below.

Booooooom Reader Submissions / February

feb600

Thanks to everyone who submitted work last month to the January Submissions post. I still have so much to go through (good problem). I say a variation of this every month but I’m always amazed how many talented Booooooom readers there are, and how there can be so many whose work I’ve never seen before. Keep those submisisons coming!

Book Giveaway: Luke Ramsey “Intelligent Sentient?”

lukeramseyintelligent-01

My friends at Drawn and Quarterly sent over an advance copy of Luke Ramsey’s new book Intelligent Sentient? and is a quiet masterpiece. There are so many layers to the book, which is textless aside from a brief foreword.

To me, the book is about questioning the relationship between everything around us, and inside us, and the very idea of us. The story, if you can call it a story, features work by an all-star cast of illustrators: Jon Boam, Emmanuel Romeuf, Jesse Jacobs, Ekta, Andy Rementer, Tommi Musturi, Michael DeForge, Miss Lotion, Finlay Pogue, Remed, and of course Luke Ramsey himself. Each artist contributed a two page environment, with their own “version of an anti-character, a de-evolved human from a grey race”.

If you are excited about all this I have good news, I have a copy of the book to give away to one of you! If you’d like to snag the book, use the comments below to tell me something you’ve learned about yourself, or your environment, in recent years. We’ll pick a winner in two weeks!

If you live in Vancouver, I have even more exciting news! Luke Ramsey will be at Lucky’s Comics this Friday, February 6th, at 7pm, launching his book, and showing a slideshow!

Take a look at some images from the book below!
