ultimatearttumblrlist-4

 

*Update April 4th 2017 – We are continuing to update this list, removing Tumblrs that are no longer updated very frequently, and adding more as they are submitted.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!

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

Rules:

1) Your Tumblr must be a survey of work by different people. We are not including individual artists’ portfolio sites.

2) You give credit to the creators, and even better you provide a link to the source of the work.

3) Your Tumblr is updated weekly at the very least. If your Tumblr has been removed because it was inactive, let us know if it’s alive again.

Magic Hour Photo Club: Challenge #1 – Can You Find these 9 Photos on Our Site?

Magic Hour Photo Club

We’re launching a little club for those of you who enjoy photography, called the Magic Hour Photo Club! We have lots of fun things planned and we’ve made some hats to celebrate! Some will be for sale, and some will be awarded to people just for taking part in various photo challenges.

We aren’t officially starting the challenges quite yet but we have a mini-challenge here, and the first person to complete it gets sent a hat, a roll of film, and a sticker pack.

Below are cropped sections of 9 photos from 9 different photography posts on our site (see full size here). The first person to send an email to xxxxxxxxxxx with links to the 9 photography posts that contain these images gets all the goods. If you find all 9 but aren’t the first one to do it, we’ll still send you some little goodies (as supplies last). You’ll find the images on photography posts between today and January 1st 2016.

***This challenge is now over!***

Congratulations to Edmond Ng for finding all the images the fastest! You’re the first person to get one these hats! Stay tuned there will be more challenges on the way!

 

 

Starting tomorrow we’ll update this post with larger and larger crops of each photo as the hunt goes on. Good luck and stay tuned for the official launch of Magic Hour Photo Club!

Update 4pm: Here’s a better look at all 9 images below!

 

 

Also found a box of Kodak Portra film that was kept on ice (expired now) but will definitely be sending out rolls of that and other film along with sticker packs to people who find them all!

Update: Feb 9th – these might be the final hints!

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.
