Booooooom Submissions / July

JULYSUBMISSIONS-600

Here’s this month’s submission post, thanks for all the submissions to the June Submissions post. This is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks to everyone for up-voting work you like, it really encourages artists in this community 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 during the month of July. 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 x ???????

boom-sneak-peek

In my big year-end post in December I said “These past five years, all of it, it’s all still the beginning. It would be really dumb to be satisfied with the beginning.” I set really big goals for myself for this year.

I’ve got something big to announce very soon (I’ve been hinting about it on my Instagram), it involves friends of mine and their brand, also based right here in Vancouver (you may be able to guess). This is the first of several projects that have been a little while in the making. I’m excited to tell you about this one. Stay tuned.

Booooooom Submissions / March

MARCH-500

 

The quality of work submitted last month to the February Submissions post was excellent. I found lots of great work by people I wasn’t aware of (I think the most of any month so far) so please continue to submit work. Thanks once again to everyone who continues to encourage artists who submit work with comments and upvotes. The good vibes are contagious.

This is the March Submissions post, please share your work here during the month of March. 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.

“Love From Hawaii” Free Encouragement Project

lovefromhawaii-1

 

If you’ve been following along on Instagram you already know that I’m in Honolulu right now for this year’s Pow! Wow! Hawaii event. The last two years I painted murals, but this year I wanted my contribution to be a little different.

This year I want to include people who can’t physically come to Hawaii so I’m launching a free encouragement project. It’s really simple, if you’re in need of some encouragement ask for it in the comments below.

Tell me why you need the encouragement, be specific, and include your mailing address. I’ll be walking around Hawaii this week meeting people and asking them to write some words of encouragement on postcards, in response to the comments on this post.

lovefromhawaii-3

 

The first 100 messages will be written on a set of beautiful postcards given to me by my friend James Jean. If you’re interested the set will be released by Chronicle Books on February 25th. At the end of the week I will mail out all the postcards.

I’m not sure how many people will actually ask for free encouragement but if I get through the first 100 I’ll buy more postcards and continue on. So who wants some free encouragement?
