Booooooom Project: #FriendlyGangSigns

friendlygangsigns-500

 

Today we launch a new Booooooom project #FriendlyGangSigns.

Here are the instructions:

1. Use your hands to make letters and take photos of them.

2. Arrange the photos to spell out a message. It could be something funny, your New Year’s resolution, life motto, a love letter, anything. You can certainly make something more creative than the two images here (I spent a grand total of 10 minutes making them).

3. Share your magnificent creation on Instagram, and be sure to hashtag #FriendlyGangSigns and tag @Booooooom.

Please submit square format photos. There’s a free app called framemagic that allows you to arrange a 2×2, 3×3, 4×4, even a 5×5 square. Another option is to just screenshot your camera roll.

You can use filters, but don’t go overboard.

The most creative, funny, thought-provoking, submissions will be shared on Booooooom. Two winners will be picked on January 20th and each will snag the entire collection of tees I designed for Aritzia.

Instagram Takeover: Soey Milk

Instagram Takeover: Soey Milk artist

This week our @Booooooom Instagram is being taken over by another personal fav, artist Soey Milk. Her paintings are dark and sensual, and drenched in gorgeous colours. Her drawings seem effortless, she is an artist in full control of her craft.

Please give her a warm welcome as she gives you a peek into her world for the next 7 days, and be sure to follow her personal account too!

Booooooom Submissions / November

November Booooooom Art Submissions

Last month I created a submissions post (see it here) as a little experiment. The post was filled with hundreds of submissions, and more than 1,000 comments. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the work (and I still have lots to post) but I was even more excited to see people encouraging one another. So lets try it again!

This post is a chance for you to share your work for the month of November. The comments are enabled to allow images so you can post an image along with a link to your website.

 

Here’s a few 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.
